Hiring and supporting deaf staff members
When a deaf person applies for a job, he may bring a sign language interpreter with him to make the interview easier.
The hiring of disabled people is not very common, however most companies are slowly following the route of inclusion.
For companies that wish to hire deaf people, it is advisable to do some research on deaf communication and Deaf culture.
The employers and interviewers need to be open-minded when the candidate for a job is hearing impaired.
Once hired, the HR and staff need to work on creating a comfortable working environment for the deaf workers.
They should be made to feel like the part of a team. Deaf staff needs to be supported in all aspects.
