Accessibility and inclusion

Struggling with recruitment? Unsure how to retain staff? Let us make it easy for you! Read on to find ideas, inspiration and solutions tailored for local businesses.

Businesses have a responsibility – and a legal obligation – to be as inclusive as possible. Celebrating diversity is an opportunity to connect to a broader community. Being accessible not only benefits customers with a disability, but also those temporarily injured or those with prams.

What is inclusion?

Inclusion is the practice of providing equal access to opportunities and resources to people who might otherwise be excluded or marginalised, but equal access is not always enough.

Being inclusive can be as simple as ensuring accessibility through the design and usability of digital products, having accessible hiring practices, or simply making inclusion part of broader internal thought leadership

True inclusion requires the recognition that some individuals have different needs, and that these needs won’t be met within systems that assume everyone is the same. More than this, it also makes good business sense!
