In the current job market, unstable economy and rising costs, the need for skilled people remains an urgent need for most businesses.

Recent research from WithYouWithMe  showed that there is overlooked talent in underrepresented groups.

For example, their research showed that autistic individuals typically score 10 percent higher in key tech capabilities. Almost a third, 32 per cent, of neurodivergent individuals scoring higher in spatial awareness and 10 per cent higher in Digital Symbol Coding.

These key skills directly translate to careers in the Engineering and IT sectors to name a couple.

As evident by the stat above, organisations must continue to consider Equality, Diversity and Inclusion when it comes to recruitment.

Diversity in the workplace is necessary as it better represents the labour market.

Equality, Diversity and Inclusion should always be at the centre of companies’ recruitment strategies and pursued in all areas of the business, including senior positions to help inspire employees.
