The Houston Chronicle recently released the names of 2020’s Top Workplaces in Houston winners, and for the eighth time, Berkeley Eye Center made the list!
Houston’s Top Workplaces for 2020 were named by the Houston Chronicle on Sunday. Berkeley Eye Center was one of only a handful of local midsize companies to make the cut, and we’re the only Houston eye care provider that appears on the list. You can take a look at the full list here.
What makes the Top Workplaces list so special is that the winners are selected based solely on feedback from employees. The employee survey was conducted by WorkplaceDynamics, LLP, a leader in organizational health and employee engagement research.
For over 60 years, the Berkeley Eye Center has been providing exceptional eye care to patients throughout Houston, its surrounding communities, Brenham, and Corpus Christi. Berkeley Eye Center offers a wide range of eye care services, including state-of-the-art LASIK Laser Vision Correction, oculoplastic procedures, cataract care, retina services, glaucoma eye care, and diabetic eye care, as well as routine comprehensive eye exams and full service optical shops.
No Employees Furloughed Due to COVID
We are honored and grateful to once again receive this recognition, but we also know that a primary reason Berkeley Eye Center is a Top Workplace is because of how amazing our employees are. As an organization, we are proud that during the COVID-19 outbreak, our company was able to avoid furloughs and lay-offs, keeping all 450 members of our medical, surgical and optical staff employed during this crisis. This, in turn, allowed our company to maintain the high level of care that’s kept patients returning to the Berkeley Eye Clinic for over six decades.
Some of the safety protocols the Berkeley Eye Center has implemented to keep patients and staff safe during the COVD-19 pandemic include:
- All patients are being screened before entering a clinic; temperatures of patients and staff are checked when they enter a clinic.
- Social distancing is strictly enforced, including in waiting room areas.
- Access to clinics is limited to patients only and those providing patient assistance.
- All staff wear gloves, masks, and appropriate PPEs when interacting with patients.
- All equipment, contact surfaces and common areas are cleaned and disinfected before and after each use.
- Exam lanes are cleaned before and after every use.
