Workplace Accommodations: Low Cost, High Impact
MetadataShow full item record
Office of Disability Employment Policy
[Excerpt] All employees need the right tools and work environment to effectively perform their jobs. Similarly, individuals with disabilities may need workplace adjustments — or accommodations — to maximize the value they can add to their employer. Employers accommodate workers everyday — with and without disabilities — to build a loyal, dedicated and productive workforce. A few examples include: • Flexible work schedules to accommodate family responsibilities; • Software to allow efficient manipulation of data; • Ergonomic chairs to alleviate back pain; • Wrist supports to reduce the effects of repetitive stress disorders; and • Telecommuting to reduce stress or address other issues associated with commuting to work.
