Benefits of Workers on The Autism Spectrum

Zach helps people with autism find work and knows firsthand what it’s like to be an employee in the workplace on the autism spectrum; he is one. Zach will take you through the barriers which exist to hiring people on the spectrum, barriers you didn’t even know were there. He will also explain how these barriers can be broken down, and why it’s worth doing so you can access this under-utilised, and highly talented workforce. Employees on the spectrum are often more loyal, take less sick days, and have great attention to detail. Discover the many reasons how having staff who are on the spectrum will benefit your company, and what you can do to find these highly skilled workers.
