Ep 213: Neurodiversity In The Workplace

Building a workplace that is inclusive for neurodivergent people is something every employer should be doing. However, there is still widespread ignorance about neurodiversity and relatively little discussion about it in our industry.

My guest this week is Theo Smith, recruitment manager at The National Institute for Healthcare Excellence. Theo draws on personal experience and some in-depth research to share his insights into how and why companies should attract, include and retain a more neurodivergent workforce.

In the interview, we discuss:

• What is neurodiversity and how is it misunderstood

• The challenges neurodivergent people face in the workplace

• Empowering superhuman abilities

• The importance of sharing stories.

Theo also talks about the companies who are getting this right and shares his advice on the steps companies can take to improve the employee experience for neurodivergent people.
