Are you an employer or HR professional? Are you considering hiring an autistic employee or do you already have an autistic employee in your organisation?
Would like to find out more about autism or to provide training or coaching to your employees?
Aspergers at Work GmbH can help you.
Many standardized recruitment processes are not suitable for autistic candidates. Aspergers at Work GmbH can advise you on how to alter your recruitment processes (such as amending job descriptions, screening candidates effectively, and conducting a successful interview), so that your organisation does not lose out on key talent.
Most standardized onboarding programmes do not meet the needs of autistic employees. Aspergers at Work GmbH can help you to structure a successful onboarding programme that will provide the necessary information, offer suitable workplace adjustments, and help the employee to settle in quickly and smoothly.
Aspergers at Work GmbH can provide training to line managers and team members so that they gain a better understanding of autism and how they can best work with, and support, the individual. This can be in the form of D&I events, lunch talks or individual/team trainings.
Due to differences in processing information, autistic employees may interpret instructions differently to neurotypical employees. This can lead to misunderstandings and a drop in performance. Aspergers at Work GmbH can help you to improve your communication style so that instructions are more clearly understood and expectations are met. Aspergers at Work GmbH can also act as a mediator between employer and employee to facilitate understanding and to improve communication channels.
Sensory overload can be debilitating and can prevent an employee from performing effectively. Aspergers at Work GmbH can help you to understand and address potential sensory issues in the workplace. This includes assessing the workplace for appropriate workplace adjustments.
You do not need extensive knowledge of autism to effectively manage an autistic employee. What is needed are tolerance and flexibility and a good understanding of the needs of the employee. Aspergers at Work GmbH can coach you on good management practices that will not only benefit the autistic individual but also the entire team.
