EARN Employer Accommodations / Productivity Enhancements

Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On January 25, 2016 (EST)

Employer Assistance and Resource Network (EARN) has released information on accommodation enhancements and tools that employers can utilize for their employees with disabilities. All employees need the right tools and work environment to effectively perform their jobs. Similarly, people with disabilities may need workplace adjustments, or accommodations, to maximize their productivity.

Having a clear process for requesting and providing accommodations is an easy step small businesses can take to send a clear signal about their commitment to a disability-inclusive workforce. Whether they realize it or not, accommodations are something most employers provide—to employees both with and without disabilities—every day. They span the tangible, such as certain technologies or special chairs or desks, to the non-tangible, such as a flexible schedule or the opportunity to telecommute. Regardless, most accommodations are no or low cost, while yielding considerable direct and indirect benefits through increased retention and productivity.
