The team at Rothwell Specsavers are celebrating after they were presented with a Platinum Employer Award, the first store in Yorkshire to be presented with the award.

To support Specsavers’ 2020 ambition of becoming ‘famous as a great place to work’, the Platinum Employer Award aims to deliver tangible business results through investing time and effort in the people that work at Specsavers stores.

An externally validated accreditation scheme, the award covers 5 key areas of people management standards: Talent Management, Recruitment & Induction, Performance Management & Reward, Learning and Development and Employee Communications and Engagement.

James Pickersgill, store director at Rothwell Specsavers, said: “We are thrilled to achieve a Platinum Employer Award. We’re focused on maintaining our performance so that we can retain the award over the coming years and continue to develop and build as a team.”
