What is Read&Write for Work?

Read&Write is an an always-on digital toolbar that supports people who think, learn and work differently. Wherever there is digital text, we can make it easier to understand for everyone.

Read&Write allows us to instantly support neurodivergent employees, those with low literacy, those with English as a second language, and beyond. It’s a powerful set of reading and writing tools that help the huge numbers of people in your organization who struggle with digital text in some 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 allows all employees to choose how they understand and are understood. 

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. 

Demonstrate your commitment to workplace inclusion, for all

Our workplaces should be a place where every employee feels welcomed, valued, and included, from day one.

Read&Write helps you to create an inclusive workplace, whilst demonstrating that you care. This can make it easier to attract and retain diverse talent.

In addition to supporting a neurodiverse workforce, Read&Write helps you to welcome and support people with:

  • Low literacy. 54% of US adults are reading below 6th grade level.
  • English as a Second Language. In the US, 67 million speak English as a Second language.
  • Conditions that affect reading and writing. For example, those that may cause visual disturbances or difficulty with working memory. As well as conditions that cause fatigue, that may be impacted further by mental activities

Support the diverse work styles of your entire workforce

Regardless of difference, disability or language, 100% of our employees should feel encouraged to understand and communicate in their own unique way.

The visual learners, auditory processors and verbal communicators. The organized researchers, logical analyzers, detail-oriented, and beyond. With Read&Write, all employees can choose to learn and work in the style that suits them best. 

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.
