Information and communication standards
Accessible formats and communication supports
The Personal is committed to making sure all our communications are accessible to everyone and to taking into account the accessibility needs of people with disabilities.
If you have a disability, please ask us for any additional information or communication supports you need.
Accessible websites and web content
At The Personal, we strive to make it easier for people with disabilities (such as blindness, deafness and cognitive impairment) to use our Internet and mobile solutions. In order to reduce navigation barriers, we have implemented an ongoing web accessibility improvement program. The program includes a process to correct and upgrade our websites.
This program will allow us to gradually apply Level A rules under the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines ( ◢ WCAG) 2.0 followed by Level AA (by 2021), in compliance with the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
The Personal strives to offer equal opportunities to everyone interested in working for the company. We ensure that our employment practices are equitable and accessible, allowing us to attract and retain people with disabilities.
Equal access employment program
The company has developed an equal access employment program designed to promote the fair representation of minorities and people with disabilities.
Building and workstation accessibility
Our premises are designed to ensure employees with disabilities have easy access to work sites. Plus, workstations can be adapted on request to meet the individual needs of a person with a disability.
