Fujitsu workers enjoy Digital Detox

Specsavers Corporate Eyecare is proud to announce that household name, Fujitsu, is benefiting from its trusted eyecare services.

Part of the Japanese multinational information technology equipment and services company, Fujitsu employs over 10,000 people in the UK. Fujitsu benefits manager, UK and Ireland, Lorna Hawkes said: ‘Ensuring high-quality eyecare for this many people could prove an issue but the online management system offered by Specsavers Corporate Eyecare makes workplace eyecare straightforward and easy to administer. The national coverage by its many stores and excellent reputation for service made Specsavers the obvious choice.’

All Fujitsu employees in the UK who are classed as Display Screen users under the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Act are being provided with eVouchers for DSE eyecare. The benefits department merely needs to email the eVouchers to the correct recipients, who then make their own appointment directly with Specsavers. Employees may print their eVoucher or present it on their smart phone at the time of their appointment. Their DSE eyecare will then be taken care of, with the optician performing a full eye examination. Anyone requiring glasses, solely for DSE work, will be provided with these as part of the eVoucher deal.

‘There are many other deals and options that our employees are able to take up alongside their DSE eyecare,’ continued Lorna Hawkes. ‘This transforms the obligatory health and safety provision into a tangible employee benefit.’

Leonie Caul, corporate account manager at Specsavers Corporate Eyecare, explained: ‘The DSE eVoucher costs the employer £17 per person and can be used to provide the employee with not only the full eye examination but also DSE glasses from the £45 range, if required. Anyone not requiring DSE glasses can use the eVoucher as a contribution towards higher-priced glasses, including designer frames. They can also make use of our standard two for one offer and are given a £20 Premium Club eVoucher on top. This means that an employee could purchase two pairs of designer frames for just £35 of their own money, as well as getting the vital eye examination. We even offer Premium Club eVouchers, worth £20, to friends and family as well. Those who do require DSE glasses can choose from the standard range at no cost to themselves, or they too can use the other deals to upgrade.’

Specsavers Corporate Eyecare won the work with Fujitsu via the tender process and is contracted to provide DSE eyecare for three years.
