E.On launches eyecare platform

Utilities firm E.On has launched an eyecare scheme to simplify how its 11,500 UK employees can take up the benefit.

Employees can now order eyecare vouchers directly from provider Edenred via an online portal. This replaces E.On’s previous system which required staff to reclaim relevant eyecare costs through expenses.

The portal enables E.On to simplify administration processes for eyecare vouchers, centralise its spend and reporting, and track all eyecare vouchers ordered.

Ant Donaldson, senior specialist – employee benefits at E.On, said: “Having a convenient, easy-to-administer eyecare platform we could offer to all our employees was a critical factor in choosing the service.

“We’re delighted that we have been able to offer access to eyecare vouchers and choice of opticians, through Edenred, which has administered our childcare voucher scheme for many years.”
