Harveys Opticians Joins Forces with Albion Valves (UK) Ltd to Improve Workplace Eyesight Health
Harveys Opticians is thrilled to announce its collaboration with Albion Valves (UK) Ltd, a leader in the industrial heating and valve market. The collaboration through Harveys Opticians aimed to conveniently enhance workplace eyesight health for the workforce at Albion Valves (UK) Ltd.
The journey began at the outset of 2023 when Harveys Opticians connected with Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber Account Executive Rachel Nunn. Albion Valves, a fellow Chamber member, was looking for a company to conduct on-site eye tests when they came across Harveys Opticians through their affiliation with the Chamber. Albion Valves (UK) Ltd was keen to demonstrate a commitment to the health of their workforce in a way that was convenient for their employees by implementing a comprehensive eye care solution through the services provided by Harveys Opticians.
Understanding the significance of maintaining employee wellness, they sought a tailored approach to offer eye tests for their workforce. The challenge lay in coordinating the logistics to cater to both on-site and off-site employees spread across the UK. Effective communication and planning between Albion Valves and Harveys Opticians were key to executing the initiative seamlessly.
The decision was made to conduct comprehensive eye tests during Albion Valves (UK) Ltd’s quarterly gathering, spanning two days at their headquarters in Barnsley. The event unfolded with outstanding organisation, efficiency, and a relaxed ambience, creating a conducive environment to allow the tests to take place. The response was overwhelmingly positive, with employees appreciating the thoughtfulness of this unique workplace benefit.
Many expressed gratitude for the convenience of receiving eye tests within their work environment, a practice not commonly found elsewhere. The initiative served as a testament to Albion Valves (UK) Ltd’s determination to transform discussions into impactful actions to benefit their workplace.
Mahjabeen Hussain, Ophthalmic Director at Harveys Opticians said, “Our encounter with Rachel at Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce set us up with a fantastic partnership with Albion Valves (UK) Ltd. By delivering eye tests on-site, we were able to contribute to the well-being and eye health of the varied workforce at Albion Valves (UK) Ltd. An on-site routine eye test may seem like a simple gesture for an employer to implement but as a practitioner with over 15 years of optical experience, I’ve seen businesses that invest in their workforce’s health and well-being see a positive return on employee satisfaction.
“For industries in which companies such as Albion Valves (UK) Ltd operate, the eyesight of their workforce is vital from safety in the workplace through to the health of an individual. We would encourage other businesses looking to implement a similar initiative to contact us. This experience reinforces our decision to be part of the Barnsley and Rotherham Chambers of Commerce, where collaboration between members is so vital.”
Harveys Opticians takes immense pride in contributing to Albion Valves (UK) Ltd’s forward-thinking approach to employee wellbeing. The collaboration highlights the tangible benefits of partnerships within the Barnsley and Rotherham Chambers of Commerce network. By prioritising employee health, Albion Valves (UK) Ltd has demonstrated a commitment to a healthy workplace culture.
