CoverMyMeds is passionate about the value of neurodiversity and wanted to collaborate with auticon to further explore how team members on the autism spectrum could thrive at the company while being their authentic selves. They were also mindful that existing employees who are autistic might wish to disclose their autism and receive needed support — and auticon could be a catalyst for that change.
auticon’s challenge was to help CoverMyMeds find the right neurodiverse talent to match various career opportunities on their technology team. They quickly adapted to our unique approach to recruitment and interviewing candidates, which is less formal and anxiety-inducing than a typical job interview. CoverMyMeds embracing neurodiversity created more significant opportunities for us to work together.
“At CoverMyMeds, we’ve always prioritized cultivating a diverse culture by empowering each employee to be their authentic selves. Since working with auticon, we’ve not only been able to build a workplace that is neurodiverse, but we’ve also been able to grow as a company. We’ve witnessed increased awareness of and support for those on the autism spectrum. As a result, we’ve been able to better manage our teams, which may include employees who are autistic.”

“One thing that’s unique about our relationship with auticon is that we work to immerse their consultants into our culture. From the day they start, we view these individuals as crucial members of our team. It’s important to us that all of our employees, including those coming from auticon, are happy and fulfilled beyond the technical responsibilities of their roles. It’s been wonderful to see the consultants from auticon feel excited to grow with us.”
