Empower your workplace with Konekt’s new Reasonable Adjustment Service

At Konekt, we understand the importance of creating an inclusive work environment where every employee can thrive.

Following a year long pilot, we are excited to introduce our new Reasonable Adjustment Service, a comprehensive solution designed to support employers in making necessary workplace adjustments for employees with disabilities, chronic injuries, or illnesses.

This service not only enhances individual wellbeing and productivity but positions businesses who use this service at the forefront of corporate social responsibility and diversity inclusion.

Comprehensive assessments for tailored adjustments

Our service begins with thorough assessments conducted by registered allied health professionals.

These assessments are designed to identify the specific needs of employees, considering their physical, environmental, and social circumstances.

By understanding the unique challenges faced by each individual, we can develop personalised adjustment strategies that enable employees to perform their roles effectively and independently.

Key components of the Reasonable Adjustment Service

  • Detailed evaluation: Our team conducts in-depth evaluations to understand the specific requirements of each employee. This includes analysing job roles, workplace environment, and individual capabilities.
  • Customised solutions: Based on the assessment, we recommend and implement practical solutions tailored to meet the needs of the employee. These solutions may include ergonomic adjustments, assistive technologies, or modifications to work schedules and environments.
  • Collaborative approach: We work closely with employers, employees, and other stakeholders to ensure that adjustments are effectively communicated and implemented. Our goal is to foster a supportive environment that promotes open dialogue and continuous improvement.
  • Ongoing support: We provide continuous support to both employers and employees, if requested, to monitor the effectiveness of the adjustments and make necessary modifications over time. This ensures that the solutions remain relevant and effective as needs evolve.

Benefits of the reasonable adjustment service

  • Enhanced inclusivity: By implementing reasonable adjustments, employers can create a more inclusive workplace culture. This not only supports the wellbeing of employees with disabilities but also enriches the overall workplace environment.
  • Increased productivity: Employees who receive the necessary support are more likely to perform at their best, leading to increased productivity and job satisfaction.
  • Legal compliance: Our service helps employers comply with the Reasonable Adjustment requirements outlined in the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 (DDA). This reduces the risk of legal challenges and demonstrates a commitment to diversity and inclusion.
  • Positive employer branding: Companies known for their inclusive practices attract top talent and improve their reputation in the market. Implementing reasonable adjustments showcases a commitment to employee welfare and can enhance an organisation’s brand.

Konekt’s Reasonable Adjustment Service is a proactive step towards building a workplace where everyone has the opportunity to succeed.

By embracing inclusivity, employers can unlock the full potential of their workforce, driving both individual and organisational growth.
