The S&B People Podcast - Two minds don't think alike - Maximising the potential of your neurodiverse workforce
S&B’s People Podcast is a series of bite-sized podcasts aimed at busy HR professionals and employers.
Rebecca Berry, a Senior Associate in our employment team, joins our host Frances Rollin for this episode of the S&B People Podcast where we talk about neurodiversity in the workplace. We discuss the benefits of neurodiversity at work, how employment law impacts employers and neurodivergent employees, a recent case on reasonable adjustments for neurodiverse job applicants and some practical ideas on making recruitment processes and working environment more neurodivergent-friendly. Embracing neurodiversity is an aspect of the employment relationship where employers might want to consider going further than the law requires - the benefits of taking a more imaginative, proactive approach to embracing and nurturing neurodiversity in the workforce are not to be underestimated.
