Veritau supports Neurodiversity Celebration Week

8 March 2024

Neurodiversity Celebration Week takes place between 18-24 March 2024 and at Veritau, we’re proud to be supporting it.

Neurodiversity Celebration Week is a worldwide initiative which aims to challenge stereotypes and misconceptions relating to neurodiversity and to celebrate the talents of the neurodiverse mind.

At Veritau, we recognise the benefits that can come from having a diverse workforce. By drawing upon the strengths of each individual within a team, a neurodiverse workforce can be more productive and efficient. According to the Harvard Business Review, a Hewlett Packard neurodiversity employment programme found that teams that included neurodivergent professionals were 30% more productive than those without them. Many neurodiverse people also have a very strong sense of fairness and ethics – this is particularly good for careers which value professional ethics such as ours.

We have a staff neurodiversity group at Veritau which aims to raise awareness of neurodiversity throughout the company. It currently has a number of projects ongoing including implementing a support framework for staff which will include access to a supportive induction and a buddying system. Other work we are undertaking includes refreshing our recruitment practices, identifying potential training, updating our policies, and developing a library of tools and support for staff.
