How to make office meeting inclusive for deaf employee
Office meetings are important as many crucial decisions and news is shared in them.
However, for employees with hearing impairment, it may become a challenge to be a part of a meeting and the conversation.
Here are few tips to make the meeting inclusive for a deaf co-worker.
Do not indulge in unnecessary joking during the meeting. The deaf person sitting in the meeting will not be able to follow the jokes and get confused. This will also make them feel left out.
The staff should be aware of the challenges faced by deaf people. If possible there should be provision for training sessions that can help others understand what a deaf worker goes through.
- The meeting room can be made more suitable for the deaf workers by making changes to the layout and acoustics. Reducing the external noises can help the hearing impaired people understand the conversation better.
