How Untreated Hearing Loss Can Affect Your Work

Hearing loss is a surprisingly common health condition, affecting approximately 1 in 8 Americans.¹ According to research by the Better Hearing Institute, roughly 60% of Americans with hearing loss are in the workforce.²

Numerous studies have linked untreated hearing loss to increased worker absenteeism and reduced workplace productivity. In addition, those with unaided hearing loss earned on average $20,000 less annually than those with treated hearing loss.³

There are major long-term consequences with untreated hearing loss. Hearing loss can be linked to fatigue, stress and/or depression; impaired memory and ability to learn new tasks; plus reduced alertness. This cognitive decline can lead to reduced productivity in the workplace.
