Living happily with Autism in the workplace
The focus of these sessions is on learning to appreciate Autism in relation to the workplace. The sessions are for Autistic employees, but also for employers. In each case, you’ll learn how to work with and to celebrate the presence of Autism at work, but also how to recognise it and appreciate it in others.Book your online course
Why recognising Autism matters
Look around your workplace. Look at your
people. Can you see tall people and short
people? Do you see people with dark skin,
light skin, short hair, long hair, no hair?
Looking at your colleagues and employees,
which one is ‘average’? .
Your employees are unique
Of course - it’s a silly question! Silly, because there’s no such thing as an average employee. Your people are many things. But above all, they are … unique. They are, as we all are, individuals.
So – take another look around your office. Ask yourself one more question – which of your employees is autistic? Do you know? Do you want to know?
Here’s a stat for you. If you have 100 employees, there’s every chance that at least one of them is living with some degree of autism. Currently between 1 and 2 of every adult in the UK is, to a degree, autistic.
So – one final question, one that’s more important than any of the others -
If one of your employees is autistic, what are you going to do about it?
Are you going to ignore the fact – in the hope that it’s irrelevant and will go away?
Or will you make the effort to find out more about -
- the nature of autism?
- how it affects those who live with it?
- how to support your autistic employees?
- how all your employees can benefit from working with an autistic colleague?
- how your company can celebrate having an autistic employee amongst its staff?
Your commitment to workplace diversity
Workplace diversity is much more than a 21st century buzzword. It’s an essential element of the modern-day working environment. Every workplace needs to be embrace, nurture and celebrate all kinds of diversity – diverse religions, diverse, cultures, diverse races. And we must also celebrate Neurodiversity. This is where recognising, identifying, supporting and celebrating autism comes in.Fulfil your commitment to workplace diversity Get in touch!
