Specsavers Musselburgh has become one of the first in Scotland to be awarded the prestigious platinum employer status.

A first for Scotland

Specsavers Musselburgh was given the award, specifically tailored to optical and audiology retail, for its outstanding performance management, employee communications and engagement as well as recruitment and talent management.

The Platinum Employer initiative 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’.

A word from the store director

Specsavers Musselburgh store director, Diana Kelly, said: ‘We are honoured to be recognised with such a significant award in the industry and pride ourselves on our strong employee communications and team work throughout the store.

‘We were measured across five key areas that we delivered consistently on, ensuring the store is a positive place to work.’ More than 30 Specsavers stores have already achieved Platinum Employer status within the UK with a further 400 due to be registered on the scheme by the end of the year.
