Neurodiversity is the term used to describe the diversity in how the human brain manifests. Neurodiversity encompasses both neurotypical and neurodivergent individuals.

Neurotypical brains are brains that develop and exist “typically”.

Neurodivergent describes a brain that diverges from “typical” development and existence of the brain. It describes neurological differences such as autism, dyslexia, and ADHD which are natural variations of the human brain rather than disabilities to be cured.

This understanding is important for creating an inclusive workplace because it recognises the unique strengths and perspectives that people with neurological differences (all of us in our opinion) can bring to the workplace. When employers create a culture of acceptance and understanding, they’re more likely to attract and retain more diverse talent in their workforce.

Our goal is to help organisations provide a safe environment where neurodivergent workers can live their potential without negatively impacting their physical or mental well-being. This is beneficial not only to those with neurological differences but to the workplace as a whole.

We consistently see that healthy inclusive workplaces with an engaged workforce achieve: 

Greater innovation due to the diversity of thought and discussion
Increased productivity
Higher employee engagement and retention
