Inclusivity in the workplace

As an inclusive employer, we aim for all its people to be able to be entirely themselves at work. We feel passionate about inclusivity and adaptable work processes to ensure that individuals receive all the support they need.

It is estimated that almost 1 in 7 people, more than 15% of the population are Neurodivergent in the UK.

Neurodiversity can come in many shapes and sizes, and it’s important to adapt to ensure individuals are comfortable and meet their full potential without obstacles.

It’s easy for a business to fall into the habit of blanket working patterns/practices for every employee in a team. For a Neurodiverse person, this standard measure is often unobtainable.

According to Deloitte Insights, teams that are inclusive of individuals with Neurodiverse traits demonstrate a 30% increase in productivity – showing how vital it is to be inclusive and adapt your approach.

Many small changes can be made to accommodate different elements of neurodiversity. Recently on LinkedIn our valued colleague, Finance and HR Talent Mentor Chloe Jones talked about how she adapts her working habits to fit her Dyslexia.

Chloe has put together a list of her top 5 tips to keep in mind when working with someone with dyslexia ⏬

  • Provide written instructions in a clear and concise format.
  • Use clear and easy-to-read fonts and consider different coloured papers/screen covers.
  • Allow extra time for tasks that involve reading or writing.
  • Consider using assistive technologies such as text-to-speech or speech-to-text software.
  • Download Grammarly and utilise it in written communication (and it’s free!).

Neurodiversity is a wide spectrum, with many different needs that can be worked with. The above are just a few examples of how you can support an individual with Dyslexia.

A strong team is a team that works to be inclusive, and making these small changes can make all the difference to the lives of individuals and the strength of your business.

If you have other examples of how you can offer support and demonstrate inclusivity in the workplace do add your thoughts in the comments.
