Visualise Training and Consultancy Ltd can provide your organisation with Deaf, Hearing Loss and/or Tinnitus Workplace Assessments which affect five million UK people of working age. Meeting the requirements of your colleagues with additional needs is essential as an inclusive employer. Our holistic workplace assessments aim to ensure that all employees have the opportunity to successfully develop their careers while feeling valued and part of the team.
Some employees may not realise they have hearing loss or find certain things challenging. The signs include…
An assessment should take place as soon as hearing challenges are suspected or identified with a new starter or existing employee. Reasons for hearing loss or deafness can include illness, infection, injury or hereditary conditions and assessments should be updated every two years, or sooner if new barriers are identified.
As a responsible employer, you’ll want to comply with The Equality Act 2010 by implementing reasonable adjustments to accommodate your colleagues’ needs fully. This results in employees who feel supported and valued while fully maximising their productivity and wellbeing at work.
If hearing loss or deafness is affecting one of your employees negatively, we will highlight the resources and workplace adjustments available to them which may include:
Our workplace assessments offer a friendly and flexible solution for Deaf colleagues and those with hearing loss or tinnitus.

“The process was very easy. I was a little apprehensive as having hearing aids is very new to me but the assessor was amazing and understood everything. She explained everything clearly and put my mind at rest regarding the assistive equipment I was going to receive.”
“The assessor was lovely, she was very helpful, considerate, knowledgeable and gave me some really good advice as I’m quite new to hearing aids and didn’t know what was available for work or home.”
“It was accessible but my Microsoft Teams crashed so I rang the assessor on my mobile which was great as I could hear her clearly and I didn’t have to use my headset as it pushes my hearing aids into my ears and head. Thank you”
“The assessment was extremely helpful and accessible, and I can’t find enough words to say how brilliant the assessor was. She was reassuring, comforting, confident and knowledgeable. I have been struggling for years with hearing loss and she made me feel like I wasn’t alone. However much you are paying her, she deserves more!”
“The process was effortless, and the assessor was a consummate professional with extensive expertise that made me feel at ease and in exceptionally capable hands. She provided an engaging and holistic approach to my explicit needs by looking at solutions to fit me rather than the other way around.”
The cost of the assessment and comprehensive report and recommendations is £795 +VAT, plus any travel/accommodation expenses if applicable.
