Workplace Adjustment Services
Reasonable adjustments, often also referred to as reasonable accommodations, ensure meaningful equal opportunities for employees at the workplace, so their skills and talents can be used to full capacity. By recognizing and adapting for individual needs, companies enhance productivity and engagement and are seen to truly value the diversity of their people -thereby contributing to greater business success.
Mark Bell, Professor of Laws at Trinity College Dublin, explains how reasonable adjustments at the workplace enable employees to bring their full professional potential to work and thereby promote diversity and inclusion as well as contribute to business success.
