Certification is achieved when at least 65% of employees report a consistently positive experience in feedback. In Specsavers’ UK business, 80% of people surveyed responded positively. But the optics and audiology retail giant’s businesses in the Republic of Ireland and Canada have also been accredited.

Specsavers’ manufacturing and distribution sites in Hungary and Hong Kong have been recognised with the same honour, while the firm has the same certification in Sweden, Denmark, Netherlands, Finland, Norway, Australia and New Zealand.

“Being a great place to work is more than just something we say, it’s something we aim to make a reality for our colleagues and partners every day, wherever they work. We’re delighted this has been acknowledged with our Certification, and our focus continues to be on creating an exceptional experience for our people and our customers,” said Specsavers CEO John Perkins.

Great Place to Work has surveyed over 100 million employees across tens of thousands of companies since 1992. The organisation partners each year with The Financial Times to produce a ranking of the 100 Best Workplaces in Europe .
