Gorseinon Specsavers has achieved a prestigious business accreditation in recognition of its dedication to staff development.

The store has been named a ‘Platinum Employer’ on the back of its ongoing dedication to its staffs’ professional development.

Platinum Employer status

Platinum Employer is an internal but externally-ratified status, developed and judged by the Hay Group, an employee engagement specialist, which sets high standards across staff career development and wellbeing.

It involves thorough assessments, including interviews with staff members across all levels, along with evidence that various policies and procedures are in place.

The Gorseinon store scored highly across all of the scheme’s marking standards, which are performance management and reward, learning and development and employee communications and engagement.

Dedicated team

Elizabeth Berrell, store manager at Gorseinon Specsavers, says: ‘The Platinum Employer accreditation is a real milestone for our store. It’s a reflection of the hard work and commitment our staff show in delivering exceptional customer service and to developing their own careers at Specsavers.’
