Did you know that learning British Sign Language (BSL) can be extremely helpful for your staff? Here are just a few of the benefits:
Better Communication BSL is the first language for over 151,000 people in the UK, with many more using it as a second language. So by learning BSL, your staff can communicate more effectively with Deaf people, making your workplace more inclusive and accessible.
Happier Customers If your business deals with customers, learning BSL can help you provide better customer service to Deaf customers. This can lead to increased customer satisfaction and loyalty, which is always good for business.
Legal Compliance Did you know that the Equality Act 2010 requires employers to make reasonable adjustments to accommodate disabled people in the workplace? Learning BSL can help your staff meet this legal requirement and provide the necessary communication support for Deaf employees and customers.
Personal and Professional Development Learning BSL is not only helpful for work, but it's also a valuable skill for personal and professional development. It can improve communication skills, enhance cultural awareness and understanding, and show that your company values diversity and inclusion.
So there you have it! Learning BSL can bring so many benefits to your staff and your business, from better communication to personal and professional growth.
