What is Read&Write for Work?
Read&Write is an inclusion tool that supports neurodivergent employees, multi-lingual teams, and anyone who might find everyday literacy tasks a challenge. It’s a powerful set of reading and writing tools that help anyone who struggles with digital text to excel in their work.
Read&Write helps to create more inclusive workplaces, support DEI and ESG efforts, and demonstrates that your organisation supports inclusion in a tangible way.
Read&Write helps you to
Encourage employees to bring their whole selves to work
Up to 1 in 5 people around the world are neurodivergent. 10% are dyslexic, 6% are dyspraxic, 4% have ADHD, and 1-2% are autistic.
These individuals think, work, learn and behave in ways that are truly unique. That means they bring out-of-the-box thinking, creative solutions and more to the workplace. It also means we should support them to work and achieve in their own way. The Read&Write toolbar gives employees the flexibility to choose how they engage with content, complete tasks, and communicate with colleagues.
Enhance employee output, performance and engagement
Supporting employees with the right tools they need to do their job can improve their experience at work.
It can also boost their productivity and quality of work and help them to express their thoughts. This leads to diversity of thought, more effective problem solving and better decision making. All of these things go a long way to increasing operational and performance effectiveness.
It's important for all employees, regardless of difference, disability or language, to feel supported and encouraged to work in their own preferred way. Read&Write helps to simplify daily tasks and improve the quality and speed of internal and external communications. It empowers individuals to excel and work more efficiently.
Demonstrate that your organisation supports inclusion in a tangible way
From day one, every employee should feel welcomed, valued, and included at work.
Read&Write helps you to create an inclusive workplace, while demonstrating that you care and you're prepared to make a long-term investment in them. A clear commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion offers substantial and measurable competitive advantages. It can also make a positive impact on organisational ESG goals, and make it easier to attract and retain diverse talent.
Read&Write offers a simple change with instant impact for DEI. Our technology helps organizations create more inclusive environments where everyone is engaged and empowered and where everyone truly feels like they have a voice.
Offer instant and discreet support, without the need to self-identify
Being made to feel different can be a worry. In fact, 76% of people with a disability or neurodiverse condition do not fully disclose this at work.
43% of employees with disabilities or conditions do not feel comfortable to approach their employer to ask for change. Most people don’t want to admit that they need help or extra support. By making Read&Write available to everyone, HR and DE&I teams can provide support to their entire workforce, taking away the need for anyone to self-identify.
What our customers say
We know that it takes on average 3 years for a person to disclose that they have a neurodiverse condition. The number of neurodivergent colleagues we have is higher than we think. That’s why we’ve made Read&Write available to every single colleague.
