Insight as a profession has been talent short for many years. As an organisation we are passionate about broadening the pool of talent available, and a particular area of interest is the neuro-diverse, where a significant proportion struggle to find work but many have skills that are needed in our sector.
ENI, Edwin Coe LLP and Inclusive Environments Ltd have partnered together to deliver a series of webinars that looks at neurodiversity in the workplace, how business can support employees, challenges some of the common misconceptions about employing and managing neurodiverse staff an why it matters. We talk about how you can not only attract, but also leverage, retain and promote neurodiverse talent. If you missed them you can catch up with using the links below.
