This Huffington Post article, written by Sign Language Interpreter Lydia L. Callis, calls attention to the value of hiring deaf employees.
One of their valuable traits is a person who is deaf’s ability to adapt to their environment.
Another value point? “One study found that deaf/ HoH employees rank among the highest safety ratings in the workforce!” Callis said.
People who are deaf spend much of their lives finding ways to adapt within hearing culture. Because of this, deaf employees may exhibit impressive patience and flexibility in the face of a challenge.
