“Unlocking the power of a Neurodiverse workforce”

Josh Bersin

Who Is the Course For?

HR professionals and business partners who want to explore the benefits of a Neurodiverse workforce, alongside developing an understanding of the legalities and responsibilities.

 
Why Take the Neurodiversity for HR Professionals: Attracting and retaining Neurodivergent employees?

Many Neurodivergent people report difficulties in finding employment and working to their potential.

Due to increased understanding, rates of diagnosis are increasing amongst young people and adults. Research suggests between 1 in 10 to 1 in 20 people are affected by a condition such as Dyslexia, and 1 in 57 are Autistic.

Understanding the benefits of a neurodiverse workplace will help employers better attract and retain highly effective employees.

What is the Format?

Remote live learning.  The course takes place live at a specific time, with booked attendees participating remotely.  The course is not pre-recorded and cannot be watched ‘on demand’ at a later date.  Participation is essential!

Duration: 3 hours.
