Recovery Heroes who are going above and beyond!

Everyone at Specsavers has a part to play, so we are giving special recognition to the ‘Recovery Heroes’ who are going the extra mile to speed up our journey.

Anyone can nominate a colleague for recognition – whether it’s a member of their team, or someone they have seen go above and beyond. We celebrate the efforts of all our colleagues with special mentions at team meetings, and once a week, a colleague is drawn at random to win an extra day’s holiday – because we know how hard our colleagues have worked over the last few months and they deserve a break!

This week’s winner Amie Marshall, Digital Delivery Manager was nominated along with team member Anthony Drew, Digital Delivery Manager by their Line Manager Luke Baron, Digital Delivery Lead.

Luke nominated both Amie and Anthony as they were both instrumental in delivering multiple ecommerce markets in record time, at a time when the business needed to open as many channels for our customers to interact with us as possible.


Amie and Anthony were both delighted to be nominated with Anthony saying:

I feel very privileged that I could be a part of this key and exciting delivery in such a crucial period for the business and I am also extremely proud of my delivery cell for accelerating the delivery of our eCommerce offering when our bricks and mortar stores were closed for business.  


Meanwhile, Amie said of her nomination and win:

Delivering an e-commerce experience allowing customers to buy glasses online in our global markets is an extremely rewarding project to be a part of, and I wouldn’t have managed it without an amazing, hardworking and supportive team, all experiencing their own personal challenges. I couldn’t be prouder to work for Specsavers.”
