Why employ Autistic people?

Autistic people can offer unique and incredible qualities to the workplace but they are currently largely unemployed and an untapped labour force due to a lack of awareness and understanding.

 

Autistic people possess exceptional talent that enables them to thrive in many everyday roles, from computer programmers and statisticians to journalists and writers. It is also proven that employing an autistic person will bring a range of employer benefits including increased productivity, lower absenteeism and lower turnover rates.

 

Making some straightforward adjustments to workplace structures and ensuring businesses are more ‘autism friendly’ will allow us for us to make use of this exceptional talent and ensure that is not going to waste.

As well as individual traits & strengths, it’s also common autism people to exude:

Reliability and Dependability

Attention to detail and accuracy

Technical abilities

Knowledge and Memory

High levels of Concentration & Focus
