Embracing Cognitive Differences to Build an Inclusive Culture | Canadian Edition

This guide discusses the employee journey from the perspective of neurodiversity. It explores the benefits of hiring and nurturing neurodivergent employees — and how to do so successfully.

Required field

Neurodiversity refers to natural variations in neurological function among people. It encompasses a broad range of conditions. Whether these differences are apparent to others depends on the type of condition, the degree of severity, and how well it’s managed.

Neurodiversity does not mean limitation.

On the contrary, many highly successful people with neurodivergent conditions have reached the heights of their careers.

Here are some examples of neurodivergent conditions you may encounter among job seekers, candidates, and employees at your workplace:

  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
  • Anxiety disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Dyslexia
  • Dyspraxia
  • Stuttering
  • Epilepsy
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Parkinson’s disease

What employers often don’t realize is that neurodiversity comes with many unique advantages. Neurodivergent workers can bring unique perspectives and approaches that lead to new efficiencies and innovations. Neurodiversity can be a distinct competitive advantage for businesses wanting to break away from conformity and establish themselves as market leaders.
