Making the Virtual Workplace Accessible: Podcast
The Partnership on Employment and Accessible Technology (PEAT)’s latest Future of Work podcast episode features PEAT co-director Josh Christianson as he discusses how employers can make the virtual workplace accessible.
The Future of Work podcast is developed in partnership with Workology.com as part of the PEAT’s Future of Work series, which works to start conversations around how emerging workplace technology trends are impacting people with disabilities.
During the interview, Josh mentions several resources that employers may find helpful as they pursue making the virtual workplace more accessible:
Buy IT! is an online resource that helps employers and their purchasing staff build accessibility and usability into their information and communication technology (ICT) procurement processes.
Staff Training Resources
PEAT’s Staff Training resource features information you’ll need to train employees in order to ensure inclusive technology practices within your workplace.
TalentWorks is a series of resources that help employers and HR professionals make their eRecruiting technologies accessible to all job seekers—including those with disabilities.
