Mister Spex sets an example against blood cancer
Winter is just around the corner and the festive season is approaching. For many of us, it’s a time of giving and giving thanks. At Mister Spex, we want to use this festive mood to do something good not only for ourselves, but also for others. We are therefore launching a special campaign in December and January: all Mister Spex employees living in Germany are cordially invited to register with the DKMS. The best thing about it: Mister Spex will cover the costs as a donation.
Learn, grow, celebrate success: The Retail Trainee Programme at Mister Spex
If words like commitment, passion and perseverance ever took a physical form, it was certainly in the shape of our trainees this year. The path our Retail Spexies have taken has been no ordinary one. It has been a journey of learning, self-discovery and ultimately triumph.
“The Lean workshops unleash an incredible amount of energy”
A few months ago, we ushered in a new era of efficiency and process optimisation with the introduction of the Lean philosophy at Mister Spex. But what is Lean and how is it possible to transfer the philosophy to all employees across all locations?
“To my son, I’m just Miss Spex”
While our multi-week birthday campaign under the headline “15 Years Optician Expertise” is gradually turning towards the final spurt, we have given our employees a little present. This week we published a special edition of the Spexieletter.
15 years optician expertise: a reason to celebrate!
This year is a very special one for Mister Spex: we have turned 15. To celebrate our anniversary, we are not only celebrating our great customers, but also ourselves.
Mister Spex at the Berlin company run 2023
On 16 May 2023 it was that time again, around 15,000 runners, walkers and skaters from almost 900 companies took part in the 21st Berlin Company Run. Among them: a running delegation from Mister Spex! Along the 5.5 kilometre route, there were some well-known city landmarks to see, including the Brandenburg Gate and the Victory Column. Our Spexies all mastered the run with flying colours and toasted with a non-alcoholic beer afterwards. By the way, they also did something for their mental health.
Mental health at work: “I make sure that I don’t get caught up in the stress vortex in the first place”
During Mental Health Awareness Month, Mister Spex would like to bring the topic of mental health further into focus and contribute to getting more people talking about it. Together with our partner OpenUp, we have therefore recorded a video to stimulate the discourse. In the interview with psychologist Eva from OpenUp, our Director of Customer Service Pamela talks openly and honestly about dealing with stress, her role as a leader and the challenges Customer Service faced during the Corona pandemic. But why is it so important to talk about Mental Health?
International Women’s Day 2023: We #EmbraceEquity!
International Women’s Day on 8 March is an important day to celebrate the achievements of women in all walks of life. It is also a day to realise that women still face many challenges and injustices, especially in terms of gender equality and equal opportunities.
Yaser – volunteer with a big heart
With great dismay and regret we have been following the news from Turkey and Syria since the beginning of February. The rising number of victims after the earthquake as well as the hardship and suffering leave us dismayed and stunned. Our colleague Yaser will be providing help on the ground.
“I didn’t expect customer advice to be such a great experience”
At Mister Spex, hundreds of store employees work every day to provide customers with a great experience in our 68 shops. From eye exams and style advice to the sale of different products, the store specialists keep our brick-and-mortar business running from Monday to Saturday (in some countries even on Sundays). With increasing retail growth (20 new stores in Germany, Austria, Sweden and Switzerland in 2022 alone), the challenges and tasks in the stores are not becoming any less. For this reason, there was an important item in our Objectives & Key Results for the last quarter of the year that was exclusively intended for our management team: a one-day internship as a sales advisor in a Mister Spex store!
