Hearing loss is very common in the workplace, yet our 2016 Working for Change survey found that 60% of business leaders feel that there isn’t enough advice available to help them support employees who are deaf or have hearing loss. That’s something we’d like to change.
By knowing what you can do to support your employees who are deaf or have hearing loss, you can help them to reach their potential. Not only does this make good business sense, you’ll also be fulfilling your obligations under the Equality Act 2010.
