Specsavers in Saffron Walden is celebrating after recently being awarded platinum twice in both Health and Safety as well as receiving Platinum Employer status. Both awards show recognition for the store’s excellence in each area.
The opticians received Platinum Employer status after being externally assessed on five key areas of business standards, including performance management, recruitment and induction, and learning and development.
For the second time the store was also awarded Platinum Health and Safety, determined by an annual, external audit, checking everything from first aiders and fire wardens to risk assessments and policies. A second Platinum award means that the opticians has passed for the sixth year in a row.
Specsavers Saffron Walden store director Kuldip Randhawa said: ‘We have a brilliant and dedicated team who are always willing to go the extra mile for customers.
Going the extra mile
‘We have been working hard to improve our working practices and provide more career opportunities to our staff, so it’s great to have been recognised for our efforts through the Platinum Employer and Platinum Health and Safety schemes.’
Platinum Employer is an initiative set up to help Specsavers stores maintain high standards and provide a greater experience for their employees.
