Safety is always our number one priority. Accessibility goes hand in hand with providing our employees and clients a space which meets or exceeds accessibility standards as well as providing accessible communication.

If you require an accommodation, speak to the HR Manager to make a request. Sphere will work with you cooperatively to determine a reasonable accommodation and to develop an accommodation plan to the point of undue hardship. All requests will be taken seriously, and no person will be penalized for making an accommodation request. If you see something that may be a barrier to people with disabilities or have ideas for barrier prevention, report it to Human Resources. We are always looking for ways to improve our accessibility practices.
