Exemplar Employer Specsavers in Cheltenham headed to Parliament earlier this month to attend a special reception following a nomination by local MP Alex Chalk as Cheltenham Constituency Responsible Business Champion 2019.

After previously visiting the store and hearing about the team’s community inclusion work, Mr Chalk came forward and nominated Specsavers. Emily Ashman, Community Engagement Manager at Specsavers and newly appointed Navigator Developer for Inclusion Gloucestershire, attended the reception to celebrate the chosen champions.

Emily comments, "This is an amazing achievement for the store, and it was absolutely fantastic to be able to go down to London. We are delighted that our work promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace and local community has been recognised."

Alex Chalk, Cheltenham’s MP, says: "I’ve previously highlighted the fantastic work of GEM in Parliament after visiting the local branch of Specsavers and hearing some really inspiring stories. It’s great to see local businesses such as Specsavers become so involved in the community, and I’m pleased to have nominated the Cheltenham Specsavers store for the Constituency Responsible Business Champion 2019."

The 2019 Constituency Responsible Business Champion is a national award presented to businesses that have been active members of the community. The criteria to be nominated includes offering apprenticeships, investing in healthy workplaces and reducing their environmental impact.
