Neurodiversity In The Workspace
Employing people with autism, ADHD, dyslexia or dyspraxia isn’t new, but disclosure in workplaces is increasing. Diagnostic rates have ballooned by 229% in 5 years and workplaces need support to get it right.
Hidden disabilities are commonly misunderstood. As a Line Manager, Occupational Health advisor or Human Resource manager finding the right guidance can be challenging.
However, with the right support and advice you can accurately assess your employees’ needs, stay Equality Act compliant and become a more inclusive employer. Importantly, you can also improve your ability to recruit, progress and retain staff from the neurodivergent talent pool.
Creased Puddle provide the advice and expertise you need. Whether it’s training for line managers, holistic workplace assessments or specialised coaching, we can help you get it right.
Getting it right for the neurodivergent means tangible benefits to both your organisation and the individual. Properly engaged and understood staff mean increased productivity and a happier environment for everyone.
Have you ensured well-being for ND home workers?
Most employers are au fait with reasonable adjustments in the workplace. But how many have updated their workplace assessments and pro-actively considered if further adjustments are needed now that people’s workplaces have changed to home? Answer: probably not many.
If you require people to work from home who have hidden disabilities, your obligations around reasonable adjustments will extend to the home-working environment and either replicating existing adjustments, or thinking up fresh solutions for the challenges home-working presents.
