Specsavers in Sutton-in-Ashfield is celebrating a triple award success. 

Not only has Specsavers in Idlewells Shopping Centre, Sutton-in-Ashfield, attained a prestigious Investor in People (IIP) gold award, the staff also finished first in their region for a mystery shop and secured Health and Safety platinum 3 status.


To celebrate the store held a tea party and staff were rewarded with gift vouchers.

The IIP award puts the store in the top 3% in the UK for world class business performance through its people, and builds on the Investor in People award they’ve held since 2003.
The award was achieved following a comprehensive three-day audit by IIP assessors. The store’s performance and approach to its people was evaluated through ten key areas which included business strategy, leadership and management, continuous improvement, recognition and reward and performance management.  

Fantastic achievement
Nigel Davidson, store director, said: ‘These are three fantastic achievements for the store, and it highlights the importance that we place on investing in our people, supporting and encouraging them to aim high. I’m very proud of the team. Each of the 56 team members were given a £20 gift voucher as a reward and we enjoyed celebrating with a well-deserved spread of cakes and cookies.’
