This is the first in series our entitled “Benefits for All”, which aims to shine a spotlight firmly on neurodiversity and the many benefits of neurodiverse workforce for employers.

The case for neurodiverse hiring is especially compelling given the skills shortages that increasingly afflict technology and other industries.

Leading businesses are transforming to ensure greater inclusivity for their employees, as part of this shift, employers must think beyond gender and race when designing their DEI strategies. With around 15% of UK employees estimated to be neurodivergent, it is imperative that the right wellbeing support is in place to ensure strong employee engagement as well as higher productivity.

We are delighted that Cathy Donnelly of Texthelp and Amanda McCallion of Power NI will join us to share how they have applied this into practice in the workplace. In addition, our very own Lucy Brown, will discuss the recent Mercer Health on Demand study and its link to neurodiversity.
