How Hearing Aids Could Help Make Your Work Life Easier

For those with hearing loss, everyday tasks can become a much more complicated process as it becomes a struggle to hear and keep up with what’s going on. In the workplace, this can be particularly problematic, especially if you are embarrassed about your hearing loss and don’t want it to be widely known.Business handshake

It’s this embarrassment which often makes people avoid getting hearing aids to improve their hearing, instead trying to struggle by with lip reading and avoiding social situations. This can make things such as conference calls difficult and hold people back at achieving their best at work.

But people who decide to struggle on could be significantly missing out. According to recent figures published in the Hearing Review as part of EuroTrak and JapanTrak research, nine out of ten hearing aid users said their hearing aids are useful in the workplace.light_HA workplace 2

Surveys were conducted in seven countries among people with hearing loss who were asked: “How useful are your hearing aids in the workplace?” Sixty per cent said that they found hearing aids to be of significant use, while thirty per cent found hearing aids to be of some use.

Around fifty per cent of those who used hearing aids agreed to some extent that people with untreated hearing loss tended to have a reduced chance of promotion and did not get the jobs they deserved. Surveys were carried out in Italy, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland, Norway and Japan.4814-Unitron Moxi 6 large

But those embarrassed about hearing aids don’t need to let this hold them back as ever evolving technology has meant that hearing aids are smaller and more discreet than ever, with some even invisible to other people.
