Services for Employers
Autistic employees are 92% more productive and 48% faster than non-autistic employees (JP Morgan Chase, 2016).
Harnessing the Autism Advantage
Specialisterne Australia assists organisations in recruiting and providing autistic and neurodiverse inclusive workplace practices and cultures.
We recognise that autistic individuals offer a range of skills that can be of benefit to any job.
We also recognise that the traditional recruitment process disadvantages those on the autism spectrum.
Watch this short video for a brief explanation on why harnessing autistic talent can make your business stand out.
At Specialisterne Australia we use a unique process to assess potential employees and remove the barriers that disadvantage individuals on the autism spectrum from gaining meaningful employment.
“For us to stay innovative and forward thinking and cutting edge, we need to have as many brains as possible and this is a great talent source of people who think differently.”
We can help you use a more inclusive way to recruit, and at the same time, access skilled talent from a virtually untapped talent pool of neurodiverse thinkers, to give your business that competitive edge.
After finding the right match for your business, we then work to support the employee in their transition and build the capacity of the employer to support their autistic staff members. We help managers understand the unique strengths of their employee/s on the autism spectrum and implement strategies to help them thrive in the workplace.
We work with a range of businesses to assist in the recruitment of a range of positions. To date we have helped to recruit employees in roles in information technology, records management, agriculture and engineering. We are just getting started and look forward to expanding the list of industries in which we work. We are equipped to engage and work with employers across a range of industries. Some of our recent clients include IBM, Jigsaw, Linfox, Xero, Australian Unity, PwC, the Federal Government (Australian Taxation Office, Australian Bureau of Statistics and the Department of Human Services), NSW Public Service Commission Agencies, the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Environment Land and Water Planning.
