Our world is becoming more digitally connected,
not less. Those who are neurodivergent, who have
diversity of thought, are showing themselves to be
highly capable in the digital world and beyond.
The business case for neurodiversity relates
strongly to talent acquisition, and a growing
number of companies are launching initiatives
to hire neurodiverse talent.
Neurodiversity includes conditions that are
developmental, relating to skills such as reading
or writing (e.g. dyslexia, dyscalculia), clinical
(autism, ADHD, Tourette’s), or acquired (changes
in mental health or arising from neurological
illness or brain injury).
Up to 15% of people are neurodivergent and this
talent is increasingly being recognised in the
commercial world, driven by the war for talent
and wider diversity and inclusion agendas.
