To mark National Inclusion Week this year, our member Brands at Work have identified five of the most common myths that surround neurodiversity, and debunked them for us! From ADHD to dyslexia, autistic spectrum disorder to OCD, neurodivergent people are often met with a lack of understanding inside and outside of the workplace. 1 in 7 people are neurodivergent in the UK, so it’s time for employers and team members to engage in the conversation, and ensure that the needs of neurodivergent people are met.
Many employers don’t currently have any strategies in place to support neurodivergent team members, despite what embracing neurodivergence could do for employee retention and creative thinking.
Thank you so much to the team at Brands At Work for sharing this brilliant resource with us!
