Specsavers Corporate Eyecare has fulfilled the first year of its contract to provide eyecare for Registers of Scotland, the government department responsible for Scotland’s property and land registers. The optical provision agreed with Specsavers Corporate Eyecare is comprised of full eye examinations and spectacles, if required, for all 1,400 employees.
One year in to the three-year contract, take up of the eyecare provision has been strong with employees giving very positive feedback regarding the range of products available and the various offers, such as the two-for-one deals that have been pioneered by Specsavers.
Specsavers Corporate Eyecare has also recently agreed to get involved in Registers of Scotland’s organised ‘lifestyle’ days, where employee-benefit suppliers are invited to go into the organisation and communicate the worth of their service and promote health and wellbeing for employees.
The ethical policy and recycling programme implemented by Specsavers Corporate Eyecare was a key aspect in them being awarded the contract. The ability to deliver a quality optical service, with an online appointment-booking service, coupled with the benefits of adopting a voucher scheme, has also reduced the administration burden for Registers of Scotland. In addition, data management reports, produced on a quarterly basis, highlighting service usage, have created transparency regarding the eyecare spend.
Dona McLafferty, corporate account manager for Specsavers Corporate Eyecare, says, ‘We are pleased to have reached this stage in our contract with Registers of Scotland with such positive feedback. We work with a great number of Public Sector companies and while the challenges are different to the private sector, we believe our success is down to the overall commitment Specsavers has to providing the highest quality eyecare service to all customers and clients alike.”
