The Kirkintilloch opticians has been recognised for outstanding people management standards with a Platinum Employer Award.

Providing a first class employee experience

Platinum Employer recognises businesses that provide a great overall employee experience and Specsavers in Kirkintilloch is the latest opticians and audiologists to be awarded this prestigious status.

The scheme focuses on five key areas - talent management, recruitment and induction, performance management and reward, learning and development, and employee communications and engagement.

John Perkins, Specsavers joint group CEO, said: ‘The Platinum Employer initiative is one that Specsavers fully supports and we hope that over time all Specsavers stores will be awarded this status.

‘Platinum Employer is an externally validated accreditation scheme which aims to raise the bar of people management standards and help ensure Specsavers is famous as a great place to work.’

Neil Drain, store director at Specsavers in Kirkintilloch, said: ‘We are honoured that our store has been recognised for its high standards.

‘We are proud of the opportunities and support we offer our staff and this is reflected in the fantastic customer service and advice they provide to our customers.’
