Specsavers Opticians in Stevenage has been awarded Platinum Employer accreditation in recognition of its dedication to employee engagement, career development and wellbeing.

The store was externally assessed against five key areas including talent management, recruitment and induction, and learning and development to achieve the prestigious business accreditation.

Store director Gail Maynard said: ‘As an employer, it’s important to not only get the basics right, such as communication, resources and pay, but to show the team that we are committed to their development, and will support throughout their time in store.’

The prestigious Platinum Employer scheme was designed to support the recruitment and retention of Specsavers staff across the UK and Ireland.
