Construction Accessibility

The industry of construction, engineering, and manufacturing is moving forward with inclusion for all. To support a diverse range of website visitors who are looking for employment, project updates or company information accessibility support is needed.

The Construction Sector Needs to Be Digitally Inclusive to Support Website Visitors

A recent article by Forbes Magazine identified customer demand for personalisation as one of the key trends driving the industrial sector. Great products and services are no longer enough.

Nearly one in five people have some form of disability that could affect their capacity to access information online. 70% of people with access needs click away from a website they find difficult to use. Making construction websites accessible is an excellent way to attract customers.

Why you Should Provide Online Support in the Construction Sector

Increased Revenue
1 in every 5 people has a physical, visual, auditory, cognitive, or neurological disability. So if your website isn’t accessible, you’re missing out on 20% of the market share.
Employer of Choice
Being inclusive sets you apart as an employer of choice. Higher staff satisfaction scores and reduced turnover rates will increase the pool of candidates who want to interview, work, and stay with you.
Enhanced Brand Image
Welcoming people with varied disabilities and access needs promotes your commitment to inclusion and sets you apart from the competition.
