As an autistic-majority global company, auticon succeeds due to its neurodiversity. Most of our team members had been unemployed for an average of two years before being hired by auticon. Despite possessing high-value skills, it is estimated that less than 22% of autistic people are in any form of meaningful employment which aligns with their educational achievements.
auticon taps into this potential by employing highly skilled autistic adults as technology consultants. Autistic employees are supported by Employment Coordinators and project managers, producing a win-win-win situation for clients, consultants, and society.
Our autistic technology consultants have extraordinary cognitive abilities that deliver exceptional value in the tech space. We succeed through our experience in closely matching each consultant to your job requirements, team culture, and the neurodiversity goals of your organization. Innovation, creativity, high intelligence, precision, sustained concentration, and an ability to intuitively spot patterns and errors give a unique perspective on client tech projects.
auticon is the service provider businesses turn to for advice on developing programs and enabling teams to be more inclusive for neurodiverse workers. We help clients transform HR practices, enable managers to become inclusive and neuro-confident, raise business-wide understanding of neurodivergence and, most importantly, transform careers and provide thriving opportunities to neurodiverse talent globally.
auticon’s consultants and clients are supported by employment coordinators who ensure work environments support their full potential. Our employment coordination team promotes inclusion and well-being and ensures our consultants feel supported in their assignments. Most importantly they work with our clients to help them understand autism in the workplace with inclusive strategies and coaching. Employment coordinators work with our client teams to facilitate feedback and advocate for our consultants.
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.
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 enabling and supporting autistic employees in the workforce makes auticon Canada the leading provider in building neuroinclusive workplaces.
Results from our annual Impact Report demonstrate the success of our commitment to neurodiversity. Many of our team members had been unemployed for an average of two years before being hired by auticon. Despite possessing in-demand technology skills, it is estimated that less than 22% of autistic people are in any form of meaningful employment which aligns with their educational achievements.
auticon taps into this untapped talent pool by employing autistic adults as technology consultants. Autistic employees are supported by employment coordinators and technical leads, producing a win-win-win situation for clients, consultants, and society.
