Welcome to Jobs Without Borders
Includeon is an inclusive web-based platform providing digital jobs accessible to Deaf and disabled people. It can be compared to Upwork (formerly Elance) – an online freelance marketplace, however Includeon is going to be accessible to disabled people willing to work online.
It is not just another accessible online recruitment tool. Includeon is a virtual job ecosystem integrating tools that allow disabled e-workers to join a “virtual talent pool”, access remote jobs, monitor and track work, manage projects (did you know that blind people can’t use Trello? It’s not accessible), share files, collaborate, communicate (did you know that blind people can’t use Slack? It’s not accessible), access help such as community forum, real-time sign language video and chat interpreting system, speech to text, resources in braille, audio and other necessary resources in an accessible format.
Moreover, our unique packages will revolutionize online work-based communication, career coaching and training through a fully automated audio-visual emotion recognition to bridge the emotional gap between non-disabled/disabled, and in particular those who are deaf, hard of hearing, blind, visually impaired, and those diagnosed with dyslexia, autism and poor mental health.
This new platform, which is now in development, aims to inspire talent, promote web accessibility, and create a more inclusive society.
To create social value and reduce the scale of unemployment in the economy by providing an accessible online workplace to comply with the Equality Act 2010, promote diversity, and create inclusion that involves a significant shift in the way people work.
To match diversity-positive remote jobs with talented disabled online workers through an accessible platform offering e-work, career coaching and emotional intelligence support and training using audio-visual emotion recognition.

Changing Nature of Work
Society is changing. Traditional workplaces need to transform in accordance with these social changes, and to cater for the differing aspirations and needs of workers of all abilities and at all stages of life.
There may be other definitions, but we define e-working (also called “online work”, “working from home”, “remote jobs”, “distance work”, or “telecommuting”) as:
A type of work that essentially covers the use of computers and technology as a vehicle for knowledge and skill exchange. Quite simply, e-working is electronic or online working. “E” stands for “electronic”, and "online" involves using the Internet.
An e-employer is a company, organization, start-up or individual that hires individuals in many fields to work online.
“Employers who don't make their vacancies known to people with disabilities are missing out on a significant talent pool to fill their vacancies.” Evenbreak - a social enterprise promoting a positive image of disabled people in employment, and an inclusive job board.
