Accessibility Guide for Business

Accessibility Guide for Business

The Club de Excelencia en Sostenbilidad, Spain has taken a leading role in promoting accessibility for the disabled by creating the Accessibility Guide for Business.  It provides strong and informed guidelines for companies on how to integrate disabled persons into the workforce and how to tailor resources to address specific needs.  Despite the fact that it focuses on disabled people, many older persons face the same obstacles in accessibility.  Therefore, integration measures by businesses will directly benefit older generations, too. 

 

The guidelines discuss problems of accessibility of all kinds, including urban, communicational, transport, product, and building.  This wide range of suggestions ensures that older and disabled persons will have greater access to services in all sectors of the workforce.  Additionally, improved accessibility and increased opportunity to enter the workforce will aid in active ageing, as the elderly will be provided with the services needed to continue working.
