Topic

Employees with disabilities have elevated their voices during recent years, mainly in regard to hybrid and remote work, being paid more than a subminimum wage, and having access to services like everyone else. ING plays a crucial role in this regard and they took responsibility by establishing the accessible customer journey assessment in 2018 and standardising changes in the products and services, such as an adjusted bank pass and ATM for the visually impaired.
