Aspiritech offers many different options to help companies access the benefits of a neurodiverse workforce, from outsourced QA testing to consultation. Major news platforms have noticed our efforts in creating a positive experience for both our clients and our employees, most recently New York Times.
Benefitting From Diverse Thinking
Anderson Cooper’s 60-Minutes segment addressed the benefits of a neurodiverse workforce. More companies are identifying the many talents of individuals with autism, something Aspiritech recognized 12 years ago and built its entire QA Testing business around. Ernst & Young’s US chairwoman Kelly Grier explains to Cooper that their autistic employees have “saved the company millions of dollars by looking at problems in a different way.”
By increasing diversity within their company, Ernst & Young saved money and solved complicated problems using “algorithms to shortcut and automate processes,” using the unique skills of neurodiverse employees.
Eliminating Ableism in the Workplace
In a recent article from Hays Recruiting Experts Worldwide, incorporating neurodiversity into workplaces is an important step but difficult for some companies that still have a bias towards ableism. According to the article, supporting individuals and adjusting the hiring process are two key ways a company can build a more neurodiverse workforce. Aspiritech’s Chief Marketing Officer Brad Cohen contributed to the article, saying a key element of Aspiritech’s 95 percent retention rate is supporting employees.
“Even now during COVID-19, we employ 116 QA testers who are autistic plus a handful of support staff to help our autistic employees with both hard and soft skills. We also offer daily and weekend social activities, coding clubs, women’s groups, and many other planned free activities to build an environment where our staff can shine and be effective QA testers for our paying clients,” says Cohen.
Similarly, The New York Times published an article addressing different ways in which a company can best serve their workforce. Aspiritech provides employees with the support they need while using their talents to successfully perform their jobs, including working remotely when necessary.
