Specsavers has welcomed 14 new store team members to its popular professional development and leadership program, Pathway.
The 17th intake comprises optometrists, store managers and dispensers hailing from five Australian states as well as New Zealand.
The group kicked off the program on 15 May 2017 with a three-day induction that cemented their understanding of Specsavers’ culture and brand.
They also had a chance to become further acquainted with the other members of the cohort as well as the Specsavers Pathway Faculty during a welcome dinner.
Over the coming months, the group will undertake a further three modules that will educate them on topics including finance awareness, managing people and performance, building high-performing teams, driving service excellence, and how to be influential leaders.
The seven-month Pathway program is designed for Specsavers managers and supervisors as well as experienced optometrists who aspire to be future joint venture partners. It provides them with the tools and knowledge they need to step up into leadership roles.
