You may be considering your first organizational initiative to neurodiversify your workplace with talent on the autism spectrum. Employers can take three different approaches for their first initiatve, which are to:
- Hire a cohort of individuals on the spectrum into various roles
- Hire an individual on the spectrum into a vacant role
- Hire an agency that specializes in neurodiverse talent, and will charge a placement fee or contract rates. The fees may be partially or completely government-funded.
For your first initiative, we recommend option 2 or 3 as it is less expensive and is more natural in how employers hire talent. We are certainly open to option 1 but we find employers are usually relieved to hear that cohort hiring is unnecessary.
Regardless of the option you choose, we will manage and deliver the entire process on your behalf in such a manner that you will learn from our expertise. We want you to be confident in your decisions and knowledge at every step of the initiative.
