Nearly half (47%) of employers believe their staff value eyecare benefits as much as the other perks, according to research conducted by Specsavers Corporate Eyecare.

The eyecare provider’s survey, conducted with nearly 300 employers, showed that only 7% believe the perk is valued more valued more than other benefits, while 7% believe it is the most valued benefit.

The research also found that, as valued as the benefit is, the legislation surrounding eyecare is still not fully understood. A staggering 81% of organisations are failing to comply with the regulations concerning visual display unit (VDU) eyecare.

Communication is also an issue with 15% of organisations still having no formal method of communicating their eyecare policy to staff. Nearly half (49%) use their intranet for this purpose.
