Following on from my earlier post on the role of staff in the provision of effective eye care, this extract from the GrandVision Annual Report 2015 highlights the importance they place on staff and more specifically their apprenticeship scheme.

It is also worth noting that GrandVision promote the value apprentices can add, over the three year programme that balances academic study and the vocational application to a commercial context. GrandVision report that in some cases sales when an apprentice has managed a store for one month, financial results have improved.

IC Optical may also consider similar ideas to address their staffing needs, ensuring that employees are developed as part of their Human Resource strategy.
