Webinar: 3 Steps to Accessible & Inclusive Recruitment with VANRATH

Would you like to learn how to optimise your website for accessibility, readability and reach in 3 simple steps? This webinar is for you.

The biggest barrier to inclusive recruitment is web accessibility. A whopping 98% of websites fail to meet accessibility standards and the number of people needing assistive technology is expected to rise to one billion people by 2050. Join us to improve your brand perception and build a better experience for all customers.

What's the session about?

During the 30 minute session, you'll discover inclusive tools that can help you to:

  • Check for accessibility barriers on your website. That means, anything that impacts people with disabilities accessing your content
  • Improve your online content so that it's easy to understand for everyone. Including people with cognitive difficulties or low literacy
  • Support online visitors with assistive technology tools that allow them to interact with your content in the way that suits them best
