Celebrating our differences: supporting our neurodivergent workforce

We value our people for their strengths, and we want to support them to play to their strengths. That’s why whether neurotypical or neurodivergent, we celebrate the strength we have in the diversity of our team. 

Celebrating neurodiversity and finding empowerment through our differences

Neurodiversity is an umbrella term that includes dyslexia, dyspraxia, ASD, ADHD, to name but a few. 

The definition of neurodiversity has now been embraced and the term is used as a means of empowerment and to promote the positive qualities possessed by those with a neurodevelopmental difference.

How we’re supporting neurodiversity

Neurodiversity initially emerged as a topic in our coffee with our CEO sessions. Since then, we’ve created an action group to extend the conversation about neurodiversity at Ocorian and meet on a regular basis to further the agenda. From celebrating the greatness of a neurodivergent workforce to fostering a strong spirit of inclusion, the group is a critical agent of change that can act as a sounding board for those seeking support.

Embracing difference to achieve great things

There are many great advocates coming to the table and countless inspirational figures in the public eye who are highly visible role models and confirm that neurological difference is no impediment to success. Just look at the successes of Chris Packham, Elon Musk, Melanie Sykes and Christine McGuiness to name a few. 

However, stigma is real, and it takes courage to be open with others, often especially our colleagues, about our neurodiversity.

We genuinely value our people for their strengths and to provide the right opportunities, working environment, and support to everyone. When we all play to our strengths, we can collaborate successfully – we all have different abilities.

We are aiming to create a working environment which allows everyone to flourish and thrive. No size fits all and if a member of our team needs to make changes to achieve their best, we are here to support them.
