Neurodiversity Hiring Initiatives

Specialisterne is an internationally recognized leader in harnessing the talents of neurodivergent individuals, providing businesses with talented employees, and providing qualified candidates with the opportunity to obtain meaningful employment and thrive in the workplace.

We’ve seen first hand how creating a neuro-inclusive work environment is good for business. A different perspective, alternative communication style, or a passion for detail are great assets to any employer. However, standard recruitment processes and management practices can often get in the way of tapping into and retaining this qualified talent pool.

Our Neurodiversity Hiring Initiatives offer employers the opportunity to “employ different thinking” by taking a new approach to hiring.

We work with our employer partners across the recruitment life-cycle – to recruit, assess, select and onboard neurodivergent talent. When businesses partner with us to hire, they have the opportunity to ‘learn by doing’, applying inclusive and accessible HR practices that allow neurodivergent candidates to showcase their skills, abilities and potential fit for the job.
