Our purpose, values, and behaviours

Our purpose

We built Specsavers around the idea that everyone should be able to afford glasses and have access to high-quality eye care. Over the years, we’ve always looked at the world around us to see how we could shape the future of eye care. Whether that is by working more closely with general physicians and eye doctors or by bringing more enhanced optical services to our stores. We’ve grown but haven’t lost sight of our purpose; to change lives through better sight and hearing. It’s what everyone in our company aims for every single day.


Our values and behaviours

At the core of who we are and why we’re here resides a deep-rooted commitment to change lives through better sight and hearing. Our values – genuine care for one another, doing what is right, and fulfilling our promises – go beyond mere words on a page; they drive every decision we make and form the foundation of our identity.

To live these values daily, we follow a set of defining behaviours that stimulate growth and advancement. Motivated by collaboration, curiosity, courage, compassion, and a commercial mindset, we continually question and develop our understanding. As a result, we gravitate towards challenging the status quo while nurturing a culture of care, support, and mutual assistance. These efforts inspire a persistent pursuit of our shared purpose: To change the lives of millions through better sight and hearing.
