Dyslexia in the workplace: The Facts in Adutlhood
- At least 1 in 10 employees are dyslexic, you may not know it and they might not know it either!
- Dyslexics make up the largest % of the neurodivergent workforce.
- Over 50% don’t feel psychologically safe to disclose their difficulties in the workplace.
- 58% aren’t diagnosed until adulthood.
- When supported adults with dyslexia 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.
What we know:
Workplaces are mandated to recruit people with disabilities. Many workplaces struggle with 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.
