Covid-19 has illuminated the need for organizations to demonstrate the quality of their customer care to people with disabilities and their families. This includes customers with hidden disabilities who make up 80% of the disabled population but whose needs are often overlooked.
“SHL is proud to have partnered with Purple, recognizing that neurodiversity and disability are vital and often missing parts of corporate inclusion. Together, we are working towards providing a better, more inclusive future,” said Andy Bradshaw, CEO, SHL.
