Exploring a Neurodivergent Workplace
Neurodiversity describes the natural way that people think, learn, perceive the world, interact, and process information differently. Efforts to increase neurodiversity can enhance the workplace in many ways.
Learn what a neurodivergent workplace is and can be and about the competitive edge that employees with dyslexia, ADHD, autism, dyspraxia and executive function struggles can bring to a workplace. These workers can contribute their talents, skills, and perspectives in ways that can directly benefit your organization’s mission and help support productivity and performance.
What is a neurodivergent workplace? Creating an environment that is inclusive and supportive of neurodivergent conditions. With 1 in 7 people being neurodivergent and over 50% of managers and leaders saying they would not hire a neurodiverse employee, there is work to be done. When employees are not comfortable bringing their full selves to work, we miss much more than their sparkling personality. We lose the creativity, critical thinking skills, and resourcefulness that go hand in hand with safety. No psychological safety, no risk-taking. No risk-taking, no innovation.
What are the myths of neurodiversity and how can employers take a pivotal role in debunking those myths? Learn the advantages of having neurodiverse people in the workplace and ways to embrace neurodiversity at work to increase productivity and be more inclusive.
