How can untreated hearing loss impact your bottom line?

While untreated hearing loss first and foremost affects quality of life, if you’re an employer, it can hurt your bottom line too.

Check out the statistics below from a Better Hearing Institute study:

  • Yearly aggregate loss in income due to underemployment resulting from untreated hearing loss: ~$176 billion
  • Hearing assistive help shown to reduce risk of income loss by 90-100% for those with milder hearing loss, and 65-77% for moderate to severe hearing loss
  • With hearing assistance individuals exhibit improved job performance, increased earning potential, enhanced communication skills, improved professional and interpersonal relationships and less depression
