Creating a Diverse and Inclusive Online Experience at Peoplebank

To support our diverse range of candidates and clients, Peoplebank is now providing enhanced accessibility support online to create a barrier-free user experience.

In our organisation, not only do we value and want to take steps towards more inclusive hiring environments, we also want to be able to improve communication and quality of service for all our people. To fulfill this mission, we now provide Recite Me assistive technology on our website, to enable all our website visitors to customize their experience in a way that best suits an individual’s needs.

"Website accessibility and inclusion have never been more important in the careers and employment sector. As now more than ever before job searches and recruitment drives are taking place online.

It's fantastic to see Peoplebank have created an inclusive experience for all their website visitors with the Recite Me accessibility and language toolbar. Providing candidates with the options to customize their journey online, enables them to search and apply for their next dream careers barrier-free.”
