Boost Employee Productivity with an Inclusive and Accessible Environment

Oftentimes we are misled to believe that people with disabilities represent a very small minority of our active workforce when in reality, over 1 billion people suffer from some type of challenge. Over 70% of all disabilities are invisible (like colorblindness, dyslexia, epilepsy, and so many more), and more often than not, employees do not disclose their condition to the employer, afraid of discrimination in the workplace. Companies are therefore unaware of the negative impact that a non-accessible environment and tools play in overall workforce productivity. If a person’s ability to do their job affects productivity, then why are companies and software developers neglecting the tools and software they create and use?

In this session you will learn:

  • Considerations for inclusive/accessible software in your organization
