So, your hearing isn’t what it used to be. You’re missing important information in meetings and watching your colleagues’ lips closely when they talk so you can grasp what they’re saying.
Still, you’re not about to start wearing a hearing aid at work. You don’t want to look old.
But what if that choice cost you $30,000 a year?
A study by the nonprofit Better Hearing Institute suggests that untreated hearing loss can result in up to $30,000 in lost wages due to missed promotions and underemployment.
The research also found that hearing aids reduced the risk of lost income by 90 to 100 percent for those with mild hearing loss and by 65 to 70 percent for those with severe to moderate hearing loss.
Ask yourself this: is looking like you don’t have a hearing impairment better than not hearing well? And is that choice worth lost wages?
Luckily, with the new generation of smaller, less noticeable hearing aids, you no longer have to make that choice. You can hear your best at work, earn to your full potential and not look like you’re getting any extra help.
