Did you know that one in six people in the UK have a form of hearing loss? This could be someone in your family, your workplace or even you. Startlingly, this number is expected to increase to one in five by 2035 according to a recent report:
Where someone struggles to hear, concentration fatigue is very real, and often misunderstood. By comprehending how this affects people in the workplace, there are a number of ways in which employers can assist their employees simply by being more aware. There are also several methods in which concentration fatigue can be minimised, from reducing background noise to providing a well-lit meeting room or allowing for a short break during a seminar.
A little goes a long way (and makes for a more productive work environment)!
