• Research suggests that recruiting, retaining and supporting neurodiverse professionals can present a significant competitive advantage, offering benefits such as diversity of skills and ways of thinking, and innovative approaches to problem solving.

    In this webinar, Brachers’ Head of Employment, Catherine Daw will be joined by guest speaker Amanda Sokell. Amanda is a speaker, author, director and entrepreneur who specialises in process and productivity, will discuss neurodiversity in the workplace. Amanda believes that recruiting and nurturing neurodiverse individuals is the next big opportunity for employers, and that it presents many advantages. She explains “sadly unemployment runs high in this group, as neurodiverse people often face huge barriers to entering the workplace, despite the considerable value they can add.”
