Specsavers Dawson Street is celebrating after receiving a Platinum Employer Award for their outstanding management standards and staff development. This award comes just months after the store was announced as National Optician of the Year at the Retail Excellence Awards 2019.
The team is thrilled to have received the honour after being externally assessed on five key areas of people management standards, including, talent management, employee communications and staff development.
The Store’s Achievement
Store director, Seamus Breslin, says: ‘We are always looking at ways to sustain and improve the high levels of service we provide to our customers, while also giving staff the opportunity to learn and train in new areas. We are both honoured and delighted to receive this award just months after scooping the Optician of the Year award at the Retail Excellence Awards. We recently celebrated our first birthday on Dawson Street, having relocated from the Grafton Street location and I would like to personally thank all staff members who have helped make Specsavers Dawson Street a great place to work this past year.’

The Platinum Employer Award is an externally validated accreditation scheme which aims to raise the bar of people management standards and help ensure Specsavers is a great place to work.
