In today’s technology-driven world, the use of computers, smartphones, and other digital devices is essential to many workplaces. However, prolonged exposure to digital screens may contribute to eye strain, headaches, disrupted sleep and productivity loss. Employers can take proactive steps to address this issue by implementing blue light solutions, such as Eyesafe® Blue Light Screen Protectors.
Sysco, #70 on the Fortune 500 list and the global leader in selling, marketing and distributing food and non-food products to restaurants, has over 71,000 employees, 650,000 customers and $68 billion in revenue (fiscal year 2022 ending July 2, 2022). As part of a pilot program, Sysco installed Eyesafe Screen Protectors on a sub-set of employee devices. Employees taking part in the pilot completed a before-and-after survey to gauge the benefits related to eye comfort, sleep and productivity.
The results of the survey were impressive:
- 76% of users reported improved wellness benefits
- 85% of users reported a positive installation experience
- 40% of users reported improved digital eye strain symptoms
- 41% of users reported improved concentration and focus
- 29% of users reported improved sleep
Some of the comments from the pilot included: “eyes are not as tired after 8 hours of working on the computer,” “eyes felt less strained at the end of the day,” and “headaches have no longer become a normal after-work symptom.”
Sysco Plans for Company-Wide Rollout
Due to the promising results of the Eyesafe Screen Protection pilot program, Sysco has decided to take proactive measures to prioritize the health and wellbeing of its employees.

By implementing this solution, Sysco is sending a clear message that it values its employees and is committed to promoting a safe and healthy work environment.
