Hearing Loss in the Workplace Resources Crucial for Success

Getting and keeping a job in the current economy is not easy, and it is even more of a challenge for people with hearing loss. However, there are ways to maximize the chances with some pro-active measures.

Better Hearing Institute (BHI) and the Hearing Loss Association of America (HLAA) are useful resources for hearing-impaired people looking for a job.

The BHI stresses that hearing aids are crucial for effective on-the-job performance, as they will ensure good communication, which is a critical skill in the workplace.

The HLAA’s Employment Toolkit also lists valuable tips for hearing-impaired job seekers, as well as those who have already landed a job.

Among the information included in the Toolkit is advice on dealing with workplace challenges such as communication with bosses and co-workers, as well as federal legislation relevant to employees with hearing loss.
