Return to work toolkit for employees with a hearing condition/hearing loss

Research Associate, Alice Sinclair, and her team at Kingston University, Birkbeck University, Loughborough University and Affinity Health at Work have been commissioned by the government to develop online toolkits to support employees returning to work following sickness absence. A number of toolkits have been created covering a range of areas, including sickness absence due to a hearing condition/hearing loss.

The toolkit has been put together using evidence from research and interviews with employees and employers. Once the toolkit is set up online we would like to share it with 10 -20 individuals who have dealt with a hearing condition/hearing loss whilst in employment to get their feedback. 

This part of our research will be in February 2020 and will involve reading the toolkit online and answering a few questions on a short online form regarding its usability and effectiveness. All the information provided will be anonymised and treated as confidential.

We believe the toolkits will benefit many who have to manage their hearing condition alongside busy working lives, so would appreciate your involvement. If you would like to help out or have any more questions please email Alice Sinclair or call 07779 247161.
