Specsavers Leighton Buzzard has proven that it not only excels in eyecare and audiology but is also home to happy and inspired staff, after being recognised as a Platinum Employer.

The opticians received the group’s Platinum Employer status in reward of their dedication to people development.

Tough assessments

Store director, Ekta Kotecha, said: ‘There was a rigorous assessment involved in achieving this award including staff interviews, reviewing all of our processes and appraisal system.

‘I am very proud of all the team in Leighton Buzzard and look forward to helping all our staff reach their career goals.’

What is the Platinum Employer status?

The Platinum Employer status is an externally-ratified assessment, devised and overseen by employee engagement specialist the Hay Group. It is tailor-made for optical and audiology retail and sets high standards to be met across all aspects of staff wellbeing and career development.

Tim Edwards, Hay Group senior consultant, says: ‘This is a fantastic achievement for Specsavers in Leighton Buzzard who excelled in all of the assessments. I would like to congratulate all the team on their commitment to continuous improvement.’
