Investors in People is an internationally recognised accreditation, held by 14,000 organisations across the world. Investors in People have assessed and recognised the world class people management shown by Specsavers Opticians Market Street, and have awarded them their Silver Accreditation.

This award demonstrates the commitment that the Specsavers Opticians store in Market Street has towards exceptional service, mainly due to their ongoing commitment to superb people management of all of their staff.

Paul Devoy, head of Investors in People, commented: "We’d like to congratulate Specsavers in Market Street, Investors in People accreditation is the sign of a great employer, an outperforming place to work and a clear commitment to success. The store should be extremely proud of their achievement."

The Guernsey store recruits and develops their employees to the highest standards of personnel training and this has been recognised internationally by Investors in People, allowing the Market Street store to use and display their sought after logo and plaque.

Sarah Burchett, Store Director of Specsavers Opticians Market Street, commented: "I am immensely proud that the store has been re-accredited with such a prestigious award and we are delighted to have achieved the silver standard. It means a lot to have the work that we do every day recognised by such a reputable body. We will continue to maintain this high standard as the business continues to thrive."

The local store is in good company, as the Specsavers head office at La Villiaze, St Andrews, was the first private employer on the island to earn this Investors in People award back in 2000, and then became the first organisation in the whole of the Channel Islands to win Investors In People's prestigious profile award four years later.

Steve Burrows, Managing Director of Investors in People North of England, commented: "This is a fantastic achievement for Specsavers in Market Street and I would like to congratulate all of the team. With their Silver accreditation, the store is certainly working to realise their people potential."

Here at thebestof Guernsey we are delighted to congratulate Specsavers Opticians Market Street on this well deserved award. To find out more about Specsavers Opticians Market Street check out their feature page here at thebestof Guernsey.
