Ricoh awarded Accessibility Tick

Ricoh New Zealand is delighted to be one of five organisations awarded the Accessibility Tick during Disability Pride Week 2018.

Alongside ACC, Adecco, Auckland District Health Board, Sudima Hotels and Vector, Ricoh is one of the first organisations in the country to be awarded this accreditation.

The Accessibility Tick is a programme helping employers to be proactive and driven in creating a more accessible and inclusive New Zealand for people with disabilities.

Accessibility Tick programme lead, Tanya Colvin, says: “The levels of enthusiasm, care and dedication to getting accessibility right that I have seen across all of these organisations is inspiring.

“I believe we are at the beginning of creating a sea-change for accessibility to become a ‘business as usual’ consideration for New Zealand employers, and it is exciting. We know employers see the value in fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace, and in making their product or service offerings accessible to all customers. Now it’s time to tackle what this means for people with disabilities.”

Congratulations to everyone involved in making this happen and to helping Ricoh become a more inclusive and accessible work environment for all.
