Specsavers has been accredited as a Great Place to Work-certified business across four continents thanks to positive partner and colleague feedback.
In Specsavers’ UK business, 80% of people surveyed responded positively, while the multiple was also accredited in the Republic of Ireland and Canada.
Manufacturing and distribution sites in Hungary and Hong Kong have also been certified along with practices in Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Finland, Norway, Australia and New Zealand.
Specsavers CEO John Perkins said that the multiple was privileged to have more than 40,000 passionate and dedicated people who want to change lives through better sight and hearing.
‘Achieving Great Place to Work certification across the globe means so much to us at Specsavers, particularly given we only receive this amazing recognition by our people sharing how they feel about working here and the strength of their honest feedback,’ he said.
