Ensure Workplace Technology is Accessible
Whether your program’s OJT is conducted in-person or remotely, your apprentices will be required to interact with technology: sending emails, filling out timesheets, attending webinars, and more. It’s critical that workplace technology is accessible. Accessible workplace technology will not only reduce technology-related accommodation requests, but it will also show your apprentices and existing employees that your organization is devoted to inclusion.
- PEAT created a graphic with examples of workplace technology. It is aligned with the five major stages of the employment lifecycle: eRecruiting, Hiring and Onboarding, Work Immersion and Productivity, Retention and Career Advancement, and Employment and Retirement.
