Information and Support for Employers

Autism an Untapped Resource – Free* Workshops for Business Owners, HR Directors

Autism Hampshire’s Employment Pathway project team have run Hampshire-wide workshops to empower Business Owners, HR Directors and those with Recruitment and Selection responsibilities to better understand autism and how they can support people on the autism spectrum through the recruitment process and into work.

Common traits of people on the autism spectrum include loyalty, attention to detail, high level of technical ability – assets that many employers seek, and yet many struggle to get through the recruitment and interview process because of a lack of awareness as to the simple adjustments that can be made to support candidates on the autism spectrum.

Only 16% of people on the autism spectrum are in full time work and 32% in part time work* – Autism Hampshire are trying to change this locally. Autism is a hidden disability affecting around 1 in 100 people .
