Specsavers in Tamworth has recently been named as a Platinum Employer in recognition of its dedication to employee engagement, wellbeing and career development. 

The store, which has a team of 25, was externally assessed against five key areas including talent management, recruitment and induction, and learning and development to achieve the business accreditation. 

Hard work paid off

‘This is something we’ve been working hard to achieve, so we were delighted to receive the news,’ said store director, Lisa Large. ‘Our team are the heart of our store, and we want to make sure that each member of staff has every opportunity to achieve their full potential and get the best out of their career at Specsavers.’  

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

Commitment to staff

Lisa added: ‘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.’

Specsavers Director of HR, Mark Moorton, said: ‘The Platinum Employer scheme is an exciting new addition to our extensive portfolio of training and development programmes, helping our staff to benefit from the opportunity of a full-career journey from entry-level to store owner.’
