What is a workplace assessment?
One of our experienced assessors will meet an individual to assess what types of:
- Support (including various forms of communication support)
- Reasonable adjustments
might need to be considered for the workplace to create an inclusive working environment and does not unintentionally discriminate against a member of staff who is deaf or has hearing loss.
Why book a workplace assessment?
