A SUTTON opticians has been recognised as having the country’s top Optical Assistant Team of the Year.

Specsavers in the Idlewells Shopping Centre scooped the title at the Optician Awards – the most prestigious business awards in optics – which were held on Saturday 9th April.

“We are over the moon,” says Specsavers store director Nigel Davidson.

“This is the industry’s equivalent to the Oscars – so it was awesome to walk away with a gong.

“The award clearly demonstrates our commitment to the team here at the store; from staff development, team building, internal communications and remuneration schemes.

“In return we have a fantastic group of staff who are all committed to providing the very best service to our customers, as well as supporting the local community and the various charity initiatives that we are involved with.”

Regarded as the ultimate accolade for the optical industry, the Optician Awards have been running for more than 12 years and are organised by the national trade magazine, Optician.
