Our mission

Changing the lives of autistic adults through employment

Supporting talented autistic job seekers in the pursuit of successful, sustainable careers in tech. 

auticon’s neurodiversity is the key to our success. Despite possessing high-value skills, many of our team members had faced unemployed for an average of two years before joining our team.

We believe in the value diversity of thought and experience brings to workplaces and we strive to create an environment for our colleagues to succeed and to reach their potential.

Neurodiversity Training

We understand that companies may wish to support their own neurodivergent talent but are unsure on how to achieve this. Our teaching professionals have decades of clinical and applied experience in autism and neurodivergent conditions. 

Inclusion is at the heart of what we do. Our neurodiversity training programs are developed in collaboration with our neurodivergent colleagues, contributing as subject-matter experts and trainers. 

Our training is of interest to all employees within a company but is particularly relevant to leaders, human resources, legal, recruiters, managers, and DEI professionals.

eLearning is designed to raise awareness of a changing neurodiverse workplace. It educates managers and employees on understanding what it means to be neurodivergent in the workplace and how to best work with their neurodivergent colleagues.

Our CPD-accredited course certifies anyone taking the course as achieving “NeuroAware” status. Students will receive a digital credential to showcase their achievements across social channels.

Now is the time

By 2030, the global talent shortage is predicted to reach 85.2M workers (Korn/Ferry, 2021), and worldwide, 87% of organizations already have this experience or are expecting to face it within a few years (McKinsey, 2020).  The most significant demand is for data and advanced technology skills. 

Neurodivergent Canadians represent a largely untapped community of talent. With training, education, and proper support, neurodivergent employees can thrive in your organization, bringing fresh perspectives and strengths to your teams. 

How will your company benefit?

The Harvard Business Review reported that “The case for neurodiverse hiring is especially compelling given the skills shortages that increasingly afflict technology and other industries.” Companies have demonstrated that engaging with an autistic workforce results in 48% faster job performance and 92% more productivity (JP Morgan Chase)The combination of client education, training, and a proven model of empowering and supporting autistic employees in the workforce makes auticon Canada the leading provider in building neuroinclusive workplaces. 

  • Access to untapped, often excluded community of talent
  • High retention rates reduce recruiting and churn costs
  • Experienced team of neurodiversity experts

Measuring our mission's impact

We believe affecting change in one life is the starting point for changing society. We therefore measure our social performance through the difference auticon makes to the lives of our autistic colleagues, the impact on our customer organizations, and the role we play in creating awareness of neurodiversity in society.

Between 15-20% of the global population are neurodivergent. 2% are estimated to be autistic. Despite many autistic people being talented, qualified and keen to work, only 29% of autistic people are in full time work. Within the autistic workforce, a vast majority are under-employed, working in jobs that they are over-qualified or over-skilled for.
