Remote Work

Since 2020 countless businesses and companies have transitioned into offering primarily remote employment for a vast majority of employees. While this has various opinions and data related to productivity and culture, one thing that remains less mentioned is the impact it has had on the hearing impaired. With the growing number of Zoom meetings and virtual conference calls, it is vital that individuals suffering from hearing loss have access to proper communicative measures and hearing devices.
