LEADING outsourcing company NSL has appointed Specsavers Corporate Eyecare to administer its eyecare policy to staff.
NSL now provides eyecare vouchers for all staff to whom the visual display unit and display screen equipment legislation applies. Prior to the implementation of the voucher scheme employees paid for their eyetests and glasses – if required for VDU use – out of their own pocket, and this was then reimbursed via expenses. This also meant that there was no consistency of service for their staff.
The voucher scheme from Specsavers Corporate Eyecare means that employees do not have any out-of-pocket expenses, all national offices have a consistency of service at any Specsavers store, and costs can now be better monitored and controlled.
Mark Tucker, health and safety manager at NSL says: ’It’s important to us that all our employees have the same eyecare benefits whichever office they’re based in, and the scheme from Specsavers Corporate Eyecare can give us this, as well as significantly improving the way we manage our costs.’
Specsavers Corporate Eyecare vouchers are £17 for the eyetest, which also includes a health check of the eye, and glasses if required for VDU use.
