Virtual Communication: Implications for Employers

Tuesday, March 17, 2009

"Go to our website to apply for a job", "Check out your benefits on-line", "I will send it to you by email" all are common responses that employers give to applicants and employees when they are seeking information or interacting with the HR functions of an employer. Have you thought about the accessibility of these activities to individuals who are blind or have other types of disabilities? This session will discuss the obligation of employers to ensure that all aspects of their communication are accessible, including that which is carried out in the virtual world. Learn what is required and how to implement best practices when using the virtual world to conduct business.
