To the employer

As an employer you can do several things to keep hearing-impaired employees in your company and make it easier for them to function in the work place.

  • Draw up a hearing policy so that the employees know what the company's position is on hearing impairment.
  • Show understanding towards people with hearing problems and be prepared to purchase assistive listening devices and to make small changes in the layout of the work place.
  • Give hearing-impaired employees the opportunity to move into other work functions which do not require an optimum hearing ability.
  • Inform other employees about any hearing problems in the workforce - in collaboration with the hard of hearing person - to prevent counterproductive reactions and to avoid misunderstandings.
