Don't Wait Until (You Think) You Employ People with Disabilities to Have a Plan

Casey Naiduk, Head of Content and Experience

In a presentation last month on creating accessible hybrid workplaces, I polled the attendees to ask: 'Does your company have an accessibility policy for internal, employee-facing content and systems?'

Unfortunately though not surprisingly, 'no' and 'not sure' were extremely popular responses.

My advice to them is repeated here, and I'd ask everyone reading to consider carefully the need to:

  • Plan for accessibility now. Even if you think you don't have employees with disabilities currently (which you probably do), build with the assumption you do or will.
  • Build for growth. A growth mindset requires accepting and making room for change. Few changes can be as impactful as committing to accessibility.
  • Build so you're ready to hire anyone and so they can do their job when the time comes.
