Transforming Lives Webinar – Embracing and Managing Neurodiversity in the Workplace

Neurodiversity affects approximately 15% of the population, so it is likely that one in seven of your staff are neurodiverse. Whilst Neurodiversity can present some challenges in the workplace, it can also provide many benefits, if managed effectively. Ineffective management of Neurodiversity can impact engagement, wellbeing and performance. Research outlined in the Harvard Business Review has found that organisations that embrace Neurodiversity achieve an advantage over their competitors. This webinar will provide Managers, People and Culture and Health, Safety and Wellbeing professionals with an understanding of Neurodiversity as well as strategies to embrace and work effectively with Neurodiversity in the workplace. We will also explore a case study.
