Getting the Workplace Adjustments Process right!
If we wish to increase the number of people with neurodifferences entering and remaining in the workforce, getting workplace adjustments right is a vital part of any organisations strategy.
When employees have a negative experience of their employer's workplace adjustments process, significant negative consequences can occur. Relationships between the employee and the organisation become distrustful and strained; employees may go off sick because of deteriorating relationships or while they wait for the adjustments to be put in place; and the employee may raise a formal grievance. This can lead to a drop in employee morale and increasing cynicism, not just in the manager, but the whole people and inclusion agenda.
Organisations should also be aware that many employees find the conversations about adjustments sensitive and, in many cases, avoid them for fear of stigma. Fundamentally, this impacts organisational performance, results and the workplace culture.
In this Neurodiversity Roundtable, we will explore the options available to organisations when it comes to their workplace adjustments process. We will also share lots of practical takeaways and examples of good practice. And, of course, there will be time to take questions and hear from you!
