Businesses need different parties to operate, and one of them is the workforce. Employees are an integral part of your company. They represent your brand and significantly determine your company’s reputation. For this reason, you need to make them feel included.

Excluding an employee may lead to an expensive claim. This guide discusses how to accommodate all your employees to avoid getting into trouble.

Acknowledge different personalities

The chances are you have both introverts and extroverts working in your company. Thus, you need to create a workplace that accommodates both of them.

For instance, while an open office plan encourages employees to interact and work together, improving morale, it may be daunting for introverts. Therefore, you should allow employees to take breaks. You may also have low-stimulation rooms.

Conversely, an open office plan may also be challenging for extroverts. You should avoid more stimulation in the room as this may make it hard for them to focus. Besides, reduce distractions and encourage employees to avoid non-work-related conversations. Instead, they can catch up in socializing areas like the kitchen or break room.

Of course, you don’t need to separate your employees based on personality. You can implement these solutions to accommodate everyone without grouping them.

Have solutions for employees with disabilities

The range of recognized disabilities is extensive with the changes in definition. It is vital for workplaces to have solutions that cater to the needs of employees with disabilities.

These include having flexible work schedules, including part-time and work-from-home, making facilities accessible, having adequate time off, providing and modifying equipment and having reliable health and disability insurance policies. Further, you should listen to employees’ requests and find the best ways to help them.

Employers should understand and accommodate their employees. If you are facing a failure to accommodate lawsuit, consider your options to resolve the issue.
