Diversity and Inclusion

Treating people as we would like to be treated ourselves

At Specsavers, everybody is somebody

We’re passionate about supporting our people to be the best they can be, and that starts with creating a workplace where you can bring your whole self to work every day.

We’re building a culture where all team members can thrive and everyone feels welcome, valued and proud to belong.

We believe diversity and inclusion are key to achieving our long-term goals, ensuring we have the right people in the right place at the right time.

Recognising our differences

Our organisation was founded on the principle of ‘treating people as we would like to be treated ourselves’, so for us, nurturing a diverse and inclusive culture is based on more than just business benefit.

At Specsavers we empower our people by respecting and appreciating what makes them different – whether that’s age, gender, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation, education, or national origin.

Building a diverse and inclusive workforce

As part of our commitment to make Specsavers a place where everyone loves to be, we have a Diversity and Inclusion Project Group that exists to enable the uniqueness of all team members to be cultivated and celebrated – where our people from all backgrounds want to belong at Specsavers and feel they can make a real difference. Our overarching purpose is to create an inclusive culture where everyone feels welcome, valued and proud to belong.

We also have two primary employee-led networks including:

PRISM

Our colleague-led LGBTQIA+ network that brings together people within the business to help broaden our scope and feel of inclusivity and diversity and see things queerly. PRISM works to increase visibility, provide education and connect our LGBTQIA+ communities.

Parent-Hood

Parent-Hood a parents network that brings current, new and expecting parents together within the business to offer the support, visibility and inclusion to be our own village. Through Parent-Hood we seek ideas advice around topics that may be misunderstood or difficult to approach around being a parent and finding the work/family life balance as you raise your family.
