Align Your Inclusivity Strategy.

A lack of hearing loss awareness can lead to communication barriers within your organisation, and between your organisation and its customers. The Hearing Accredited Workplace Programme is a nationwide initiative that provides practical tools and training to assist organisations to be more hearing aware and to be supportive of employees who are Deaf or hard of hearing.

 

Hearing loss currently affects around 11% of New Zealand's workforce and this number is increasing. Youth hearing loss is on the rise globally, with 1 in 5 teenagers estimated to be living with this disability. As these young people enter the workforce, this will have a significant impact, particularly on organisations who lack inclusivity strategies that accommodate hearing loss.

 

Increased levels of disabling hearing loss is a widespread global challenge. According to the World Health Organisation, current levels of hearing loss are expected to double over the next three decades. 

 

Align your disability and inclusion strategy by becoming a Hearing Accredited Workplace. Your organisation will be in a stronger position to retain experienced staff, gain access to a new talent pool and attract new customers.

As part of the Hearing Accredited Workplaces Programme, NFDHH offer free hearing screenings to employees during a hearing screening day or screening week (depending on the size of your team).

 

It's a great opportunity for employees to learn more about their hearing health, monitor any changes and ensure they get the support they need.

 

NFDHH is also collating screening data, as part of a five-year study, to get a better understanding of the prevalence of hearing loss in New Zealand workplaces.
