Neurodivergence in the Workplace: The Facts

Three types of dyslexic employees in the workplace re:think dyslexia model

Neurodivergence refers to the natural variation in human brain function and behaviour, which includes a range of cognitive differences such as dyslexia, autism attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and more. 20% of the workforce is made up of those who have a neurodivergence with dyslexics making up the largest percentage at 10%!

Neurodivergent differences can impact how individuals think, learn, and interact in and out of the workplace. While neurodivergent individuals bring unique strengths and perspectives to the workplace, they may also face specific challenges that require targeted support and additional complexities that neurodivergent employees face.

What the research tells us:

  • Over 50% don’t feel psychologically safe to disclose their difficulties in the workplace.
  • 58% aren’t diagnosed with dyslexia until adulthood.
  • 1 in 7 neurodivergent employees face unemployment and underemployment
  • When unsupported in the workplace neurodivergent employees face higher levels of job stress leading to job burnout.
  • When supported in the workplace neurodivergent employees have the kind of strengths that can help your organisation be more dynamic, innovative and forward-thinking. All it takes, with the help of HR and DEI, is the support our workplace programs provide. That’s the advantage of doing things differently.

Workplaces are mandated to recruit people with disabilities. Many workplaces struggle with the effective recruitment of neurodivergent individuals, leading to missed opportunities and or failure to meet contractual requirements.

Organisations are mandated to mitigate psychosocial hazards. 57% of dyslexic employees don’t feel safe to disclose their difficulties. Leaving many dyslexics vulnerable and organisations at risk of litigation.

Organisations are not utilising available federal funding to support neurodivergent employees, resulting in a lack of awareness and access to necessary support.

There is a workforce skills shortage. Workplaces without effective processes for recruiting, onboarding, retaining, and promoting neurodivergent employees are missing out on a valuable talent pool.

The cost of employee turnover is significant. Inadequate inclusivity measures can lead to high employee turnover, impacting both finances and company culture.

From the outset it was clear that Shae is passionate about educating people about dyslexia and how to make our environment more inclusive so that all students can succeed. Shae’s presentations were informed by research and her own experiences which made our time together more authentic.
