Global communications provider, BT, is benefiting from improved eyecare provision having switched to Specsavers Corporate Eyecare. The telecoms giant has received higher take-up levels, administrative advantages and positive employee feedback since turning to Specsavers Corporate Eyecare a year ago.
Around half of BT’s 90,000 employees are using VDU and/or Safety vouchers provided by Specsavers Corporate Eyecare. BT’s HR department has found particular advantage in Specsavers having over 600 stores across the UK. Staff have no trouble in finding a closely located, fully trained optometrist and there is consistency of both service and cost. BT’s previous supplier relied on employees finding their own optician, a system which resulted in vastly varying charges. VDU vouchers from Specsavers Corporate Eyecare cost a uniform £17 for both the eye examination and VDU spectacles, if required.
Jim Lythgow, Director of Strategic Alliances for Specsavers Corporate Eyecare says, “BT has appreciated having a single point of contact for their eyecare needs. They like the simplicity of being able to just hand out standard vouchers for both VDU and Safety eyewear. This gives not only transparency and consistency of provision but also works out to be extremely effective in terms of both cost and administration.”
