SPECSAVERS in Manchester Fort Shopping Park has been awarded for their outstanding dedication to employees and its ongoing work in inspiring the next generation of optometrists and audiologists.
The Specsavers store was presented with the company’s Platinum Employer accreditation, recognising both the eye care and the hear care departments for their continued efforts in support of employee welfare and career development.
The Platinum Employer status is measured by five indicators of the employee experience, including talent management, recruitment and induction, and performance management and reward.
Matthew Rowlands, store director at Specsavers Manchester Fort, credits the store’s success to his team of talented professionals, saying: ‘We count ourselves lucky to have a great variety of people working in the store, who have decades of experience under their belt. This award is down entirely to their expertise and dedication which has fostered a brilliant working environment in which new talent can really flourish.
‘Their loyalty means we can deliver an amazing service to our customers and give back to the community through some fantastic employment opportunities. We are always looking at how we can improve as an employer and this is an amazing reward for the team’s continued hard work and enthusiasm.’
Specsavers director of HR, Mark Moorton, says: ‘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.’
