Specsavers in Halesowen has recently been recognised for its commitment to employee engagement, wellbeing and career development with a prestigious business award.
The store was externally assessed against five key areas, including recruitment and induction, performance management and learning and development, to receive its Platinum Employer status. The initiative was designed and verified by employee engagement specialist, Korn Ferry Hay Group, to support the recruitment and retention of high-calibre employees.
A word from the store director
‘We’re delighted to announce that we’re now recognised as a Platinum Employer,’ said store director, Shahid Parvez. ‘We’re always looking for ways to improve employee engagement and ensure that the whole team is working towards fulfilling their potential.
‘We have a strong team here in Halesowen and every member of staff is intrinsic to the store’s success, so it is important that they feel valued as employees.’
Shahid added: ‘We’re dedicated to encouraging our team to do their best and, without their hard work, we wouldn’t be able to make such a positive difference for our customers. This award is a brilliant achievement for the store and adds to the sense of pride we feel working for Specsavers and serving our local community.’
