Should’ve joined Specsavers - Amazing team incentives offered for store employees

We ran a contact lens treasure hunt in stores between the 4th June and 30th July 2017, which was aimed at all of our store colleagues to get them excited, focussed and engaged with contact lenses and what they can offer to our customers. The treasure hunt meant that stores were incentivised to sign up new Lensmail customers to be in with a chance of winning a prize.

Throughout the incentive, we have seen over 15,000 prizes given away to team members!! Prizes available included tens of thousands of high street vouchers, iPads, apple watches, spa breaks, theatre tickets and not forgetting 8 huge holidays, including Dominican Republic, Cuba, Los Angeles and Dubai! A FREE holiday – I don’t think staff can be more incentivised than that!

The winner of the Los Angeles holiday, Michael, an in-store trainer and pre-reg dispensing optician from Dalston Cross said: ‘This will be our first holiday abroad for six or seven years. America is a place we’ve always wanted to go and we thought we’d never save up enough. We’re getting married this year so we’ll treat this like a honeymoon. There’s a lot to do in LA so we went online to figure out what to do whilst we’re there. Everyone’s got on board with this incentive – we’ve just been mentioning direct debits as much as possible. It’s done really well for the store – I can’t remember when we had this many sign-ups.’

Maidstone retail supervisor Jackie Jowitt was delighted to win a trip for two to Dubai. Store director Sanjay Patel said: ‘Jackie was still shaking whilst discussing with her husband what time of year they'd like to go. Jackie regularly promotes contact lens trials to customers and coaches the team to do so. We’ve decided to give her an extra week's annual leave to be able to go to Dubai.’

Rewarding our employees for their hard work is something Specsavers prides themselves on. Our stores really enjoyed this incentive and the number of prizes won demonstrates just how excited we got everyone about Contact Lenses!
