Neurodivergent talent: the new frontier in diversity hiring

In this webinar, our expert panel will explore how recruiters and employers can break down the barriers that keep companies from considering, hiring, and developing neurodivergent talent. As part of their diversity, equity, and inclusions (DEI) programs, many companies have started to reform their hiring processes to target neurodivergent talent. Not only is it the right thing to do, but studies show that a neurodiverse workforce can increase productivity by 30%. It’s not just in tech jobs; neurodivergent people can be top contributors in many hard-to-fill roles.

‘Neurodivergent’ is a term that refers to people with autism, dyslexia, dyspraxia, ADHD, and other neurological conditions. These include ‘spectrum conditions’ with a wide range of characteristics. Many organizations fail to understand neurodivergent talent and the potential scope of their contributions, as neurodivergent people can struggle to fit the ‘mold’ or ‘profile’ sought by employers. In this webinar, our expert panel will explore how recruiters and employers can break down the barriers that keep companies from considering, hiring, and developing neurodivergent talent. With simple and inexpensive accommodations, companies can tap a vast pool of highly skilled talent that has been historically locked out of the job market.
