Optical assistant Laura Sayers has been voted staff member of the year for 2017 by the team at Specsavers Horsham, in West Street.

Laura received her award at an annual post-Christmas party for local Specsavers staff in January.

Fantastic growth

Laura received the award for fantastic growth in her role, and for showing incredible maturity.

She started at the store on a part-time basis, and enjoyed it so much she decided not to go to university and to pursue a career with Specsavers instead.

Credit to the team

Matt Gawn, store manager in Horsham, said: ‘Laura is a real credit to our team. She has shown incredible growth in really short space of time, and we are delighted to have her with us.

‘I am confident she has the potential to build a great career with Specsavers, and look forward to watching her continue to develop.’
