Thankful Thursday – Beachbody

Stark contrast.

My very first job, at the tender age of 16, the manager didn’t even want to hire me (she wanted someone who could also answer the phones…) and it wasn’t until she was reminded about DISCRIMINATION, that she agreed to hire me. And to some level, that experience has always stayed with me…

In companies where everyone is just trying to get ahead, it means a lot to me that Beachbody is so diligent in making sure those of us with hearing impairments get a level playing field, and they do this in many ways, but some of the most notable are transcribing their weekly National Wakeup Calls, and captioning every training/promotional video they do, and while that may be wasted on some people, it is certainly not wasted on me, and I am so very grateful and thankful they do this. It’s quite a contrast, and they do it willingly and happily.

Technology is a beautiful thing, and a company making the effort to make everything accessible is a HUGE part of why I am grateful for this platform.

Could you use such a platform with which to better YOUR life?
