About Let’s Listen 2017

Let's Listen is a unique event that will offer insight into the importance of achieving good hearing in the workplace and beyond. It will spotlight the needless loss of talent and expertise that can be prevented by implementing some simple hearing solutions, resulting in enhanced staff retention, motivation, productivity and trust at all levels.

Leading UK hearing loss charity Hearing Link and the Master of the Worshipful Company of Feltmakers on behalf of the Feltmakers Charitable Foundation are hosting this ground-breaking event to:

  • provide insight into the prevalence and impact of hearing loss at work and in wider settings.
  • enable businesses and HEIs to design strategies that will identify, support and retain experienced and valued talent whose hearing is impacting their performance.
  • demonstrate some of the solutions (technological and behavioural) that improve hearing in the workplace and beyond.

 

Let's Listen will tackle the topic “Improving hearing in the workplace", exploring: 

  • The impact of hearing loss on employees’ performance and health
  • Why it’s vital for businesses and other organisations including HEIs to proactively address hearing issues
  • Available technologies, including customer-facing technology, to tackle hearing loss and improve communications 
  • Coping strategies and solutions that individuals and organisations can develop
