The Maldon opticians has been awarded a Platinum Employer Award.

The Specsavers store, based on 65 High Street, has been recognised for its outstanding people management standards.

Platinum employee experience

Platinum Employer recognises businesses that provide a great overall employee experience, and Maldon Specsavers is the latest opticians 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.

Recognising high standards

Jan Lotter, ophthalmic director at Specsavers in Maldon, said: ‘We’re so proud our store has been awarded this prestigious status.

‘We pride ourselves on the opportunities and support we offer our staff and it’s reflected in all their hard work and outstanding customer service. We truly are honoured to receive this award.’

Raising the bar

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.’
