Neurodiversity is not just about ‘doing the right thing’ anymore.
GCHQ, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, Direct Line Group and JPMorgan Chase are actively getting it ‘right’ and supporting neurodiverse employees throughout their employment - benefiting both the employee AND the organisation.
Neurodiverse employees can increase productivity levels by nearly as much as 50% (Siemens) - resulting in increased profits and customer satisfaction.
With many well known entrepreneurs voicing strong support for neurodiversity (Richard Branson, Lord Alan Sugar, Ingvar Kamprad to name a few), and programmes such as Employable Me creating national awareness, it is no surprise that the term is such a hot topic at the moment.
