HR-inform accessibility

Our commitment to accessibility
HR-inform has been designed, developed and tested on as many computers and web browsers as possible to ensure accessibility.

We've made every effort to provide a useful website for as many people as possible. We avoid using colour combinations that cause difficulties for people with colour blindness and have made provision for people who are visually impaired. This follows many of the recommendations from the RNIB Web Accessibility Initiative. We continue to monitor our site on a regular basis to improve accessibility for people with sensory disabilities.

If you find the layout of the homepage confusing, look at the site map for a simple table with links to all the areas of the site.

If you have a question that we haven't covered in this section, would like more detailed help or wish to provide feedback please contact our Website Support team on +44 (0)20 8612 6211, or alternatively complete our feedback form.

  • Firefox
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer 8.0 or higher
  • Safari
  • Security level of 128-bit encryption
  • Cookies enabled
  • A minimum screen resolution of 1024x768
For optimum speed and display of HR-inform we recommend using Chrome.

Our flowcharts require HTML5 Canvas to display as an interactive tool. The following browser versions do not fully support HTML Canvas:
  • IE 8 and below
  • Opera Mini

You can test whether your current browser supports HTML5 Canvas here. Where HTML5 Canvas is unsupported, you will be provided with a static image of the flowcharts. However, we recommend that you upgrade your browser to fully benefit from the flowchart tools.

Additionally, it is desirable, although not necessary, for Javascript to be enabled in your browser. HR-inform uses Javascript to deliver interactive functionality such as the pop-ups that are associated with HR calendar events and downloadable documents.
