Neurodiversity in the workplace

What is Neurodiversity and why does it matter .

  • Neurodiversity is the idea that there are natural variations in the way that people think and process information. 
  • Today, those neurological differences are given labels such as autism spectrum conditions, ADHD, dyslexia, and dyspraxia.
  • At least one in ten working-age adults are neurodivergent in some way.
  • Neurodiversity has always been with us. Workers who think differently often have pronounced strengths that can bring real value to their workplace.
  • Unfortunately, most workplaces and working practices are not designed to be inclusive of these natural variations. Intended or otherwise, this form of exclusion can create barriers, which in turn can lead to discrimination, pressure, and underperformance
  • The need to create inclusive workplaces is an issue of growing importance
  • As with all workplace issues, no worker should have to shoulder burdens alone. The most effective response will always be on a collective level.
