Reasonable adjustments refer to changes or modifications made in the workplace, or hybrid working space, to help employees overcome challenges and perform to their best ability.

The Benefits of Workplace Inclusivity

By embracing these adjustments, businesses not only adhere to legal obligations but also foster a culture of respect, diversity, and inclusion. This approach significantly benefits organisations by enhancing employee well-being, boosting productivity, and promoting a positive workplace environment.
