You Can't Ask That!

Diversity and inclusion can seem like buzz words or the latest “thing” your HR clients like to discuss. 

Do you know what it really means in relation to neurodiversity?
 ‘You Can’t Ask That!’ will provide insight into the questions we can and can’t ask in the recruitment process. Do you know if your recruitment processes and staff are excluding the estimated 20% of the workforce that demonstrate neurodiverse traits – can you afford to miss out on them in this candidate-tight market?

By tapping into the neurodiverse talent pool, recruiters can access a wealth of skills and perspectives that can drive innovation & productivity. Hear from Vicky Little, National Manager, Quality and Practice at Specialisterne Australia
