Companies only think of inclusive design when it comes to their customers and their products, and services and how to create those with inclusive design in mind. However, the employees and the culture of inclusive design is often ignored and not seen as important as doing it for their customers, they think it is too much to implement for the employees.

The consequences for businesses and employees not caring about the problem, is that they will be missing out on a whole talent pool that can provide unique and different solutions. Accessibility is seen only as an advantage for people with disabilities however it allows for a wide range of solutions that everyone in the company can use.

Attendees will learn how to create and implement hiring practices and policies and procedures that have been used by other companies the speaker has consulted to ensure more accessibility in the workplace from making interviews more inclusive for candidates, to writing and implementing more accessible policies and procedures for disabled and neurodivergent employees. Practical solutions for all HR Professionals can be used and implemented into their department in the area of recruitment and retention to ensure that barriers are removed to help people be successful in the recruitment process and on the job.
