The Nottingham Specsavers store has been recognised as a store best demonstrating excellence in people development and engagement.

Nottingham Specsavers team has beaten hundreds of its counterparts around the country to jointly win the 2014 Specsavers Excellence in People Development and Engagement award.

Developing and engaging employees

This accolade was presented to the Nottingham store team as they showed a track record of developing and engaging employees. The store management was rewarded as they go the extra mile to motivating members of the team and take the time to grow employees’ skills.

The team was presented with their award at a glitzy gala dinner held on Saturday 6 December at Birmingham’s ICC, which was compered by comedian Bradley Walsh and saw over 1,000 guests present at the lavish awards ceremony.

Simon Dunn, store director at Specsavers in Nottingham, said: ‘We’re thrilled to have won this award as it was the one we most wanted. Our professionalism and commitment in store has been recognised and to be picked out of 800 stores is a fantastic achievement for the team.’
