Accessibility is important.. We know a guy!
Accessibility is topic that’s becoming more and more top of mind for employers. Not only are there potential legal issues, there are other things to think about that you may not have thought of. I list out some of these considerations below. If this is something of interest, we have an excellent candidate who is an expert on this subject. If you want more information on this candidate, contact us at email@example.com.
- Legal Compliance: Many countries have regulations and laws that mandate businesses and websites to be accessible to individuals with disabilities. By hiring an accessibility expert, you can ensure compliance with these regulations, reducing the risk of legal issues and potential fines.
- Market Reach and Inclusivity: Making your products, services, and digital platforms accessible ensures inclusivity for people with diverse abilities. This expanded reach not only enhances your market share but also aligns with a commitment to social responsibility and inclusivity.
- User Experience and Satisfaction: Accessibility improvements contribute to a better overall user experience. By accommodating users with disabilities, you enhance the usability of your products or services for everyone. This can lead to increased customer satisfaction, positive reviews, and repeat business.
- Competitive Advantage: In today’s competitive business landscape, companies that prioritize accessibility demonstrate a commitment to serving all users, setting them apart from competitors. This can be a valuable differentiator for you in the market.
- Brand Reputation: Companies that invest in accessibility are viewed as socially responsible and caring about their customers. This positive perception can enhance the overall reputation of your brands, fostering customer loyalty and trust.
- Avoidance of Retrofitting Costs/Address it Early: Addressing accessibility issues early in the development process is more cost-effective than retrofitting later. Accessibility experts can identify barriers in the early stages of a project, saving time and resources that would otherwise be spent on fixing issues post-implementation.
- SEO Benefits: Accessible websites normally rank higher in search engine results. Search engines, like Google, prioritize accessible content, meaning that investing in accessibility can positively impact your online visibility and search engine optimization (SEO) efforts.
- Customer Retention: By ensuring that all users, including those with disabilities, have a positive experience with your company, you can foster loyalty and better retain your customer base.
