Neurodiversity in the Workplace with Professor Amanda Kirby

Friday, 19 February 2021

11:00 to 12:00

Zoom Video Call

Calling all HR & Development professionals – Are you ready to learn? 

Macildowie Recruitment and Retention are excited to announce a brand new event, centred on a vital employee engagement topic that ALL businesses should be interested in: Neurodiversity in the Workplace

Here at Macildowie, we want to start the year as we mean to go on! We are focused on, not only finding you the top talent in the market, but in helping you to retain that talent.

With that in mind, Macildowie are collaborating with Professor Amanda Kirby to host a “Neurodiversity in the Workplace” seminar.

We are all neurodiverse but one in five people in the UK are classified as ‘neurodivergent’ – that is a whopping 20% of UK talent - and there are a great many ways that, as an employer, you can ensure that your hiring and onboarding processes are inclusive and accessible for all.

We all think we have at least an idea of what it means to be neurodivergent, but believe me, this event will be a real eye-opener! If one in five people are neurodivergent, how many people in your life; colleagues, employees, friends, family etc. will this apply to?

If you are neurodivergent yourself, you may benefit from learning a thing or two about how to ask for the support that is right for you!

Neurodiversity awareness is much more than ensuring you have access to a wider talent pool. This workshop will not only teach you what it means to be a neurodiverse workplace but how to deliver appropriate support.

Being INCLUSIVE and AWARE as an employer (and as a business) is fast becoming a key factor in the recruitment process. Taking the time to understand what your employees NEED will help you to recruit and to retain the top talent… and to ensure that you’ve set that talent up to SUCCEED.
