Embracing and understanding neurodiversity in assessment

Episode 2 Hosts: Ali Shalfrooshan and Mary Mescal

What is neurodiversity? The term itself is fairly young – having only been coined about 30 years ago. In the world of work, do you know how neurodiverse individuals can not only contribute to your organisation but provide unique benefits? Join R&D colleagues Ali Shalfrooshan and Mary Mescal as they explore the world of tests, processes, and recruitment, and their impact on the neurodiverse community. They explain the need for an inclusive approach from the very beginning when an assessment is first being developed and the importance of communication throughout the entire recruitment process.

Learn about some of the barriers that can inhibit neurodiverse individuals from reaching their full potential in the workforce, what the phrase ‘spikey profile’ means, and what research has shown when it comes to reasonable adjustments for Situational Judgement Tests (SJTs). By incorporating neurodiversity into your organisation’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives, you may be tapping into an underutilised category of candidates and employees who can contribute immensely from day one on the job.

Neurodiversity in assessment

Embracing neurodiversity brings organisations unmissable new perspectives, and problem-solving approaches.

Neurodiversity is the natural variation in human cognition and the way we function, learn and process information, challenging the idea of a “normal” way of thinking. In recent years, neurodiversity has gained increasing attention as an essential part of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiatives in the workplace.

In this white paper, you will discover the findings of Talogy’s unique research with a neurodiverse selection population, helping us all understand what needs to be done to create fair assessment processes for all.
