Embrace Neuroinclusion & Diversify Success

Neurodiversity is a term used to describe differences in mental or neurological function from what is considered “typical”. Neurodivergent individuals often display behaviours that are counter to common perspectives of what makes a ‘good employee’. Solid communication, ability to network, emotional intelligence and conforming to standard practices without special accommodations, to name a few. As a result, these expectations can screen out neurodiverse people from most selection criteria.

The Benefits of Neuroinclusion

Individuals who are neurodivergent can and have contributed significantly to the success of organisations by offering, in some cases, extraordinary skills, including pattern recognition, memory, and mathematics.

Organisations that adapt their hiring practices and create inclusive working environments where neurodiverse individuals can thrive can tap into a largely untapped talent pool and gain a competitive edge from increased diversity in skills, ways of thinking, and problem-solving.

Many major employers, including SAP, Microsoft, EY, JPMorgan Chase, and Ford Motor Company, have already recognised the value of neurodiversity in the workplace and are part of the “Neurodiversity @ Work Roundtable,” a collective of organisations that make an extra effort to recruit, retain, and nurture neurodivergent workers.
