Our work culture

Celebrate individual difference, come together as a team

At Auticon we celebrate individual difference and human diversity. We are extremely proud of our autism-positive work culture, recognising each employee for their individual strengths and talents.

We believe that society and workplaces in particular greatly benefit from understanding and embracing autism-specific strengths. We take great care that our roles are matched to the personal skills and interests of each employee and work together with employees on developing their career.

To tackle the autism employment gap and to make best possible use of the skills that autistic people have to offer, we strongly believe that it’s not autistic people who need to change – it’s the environment that needs to be more understanding, aware and respectful. It often only takes minor adjustments or an understanding line manager to allow autistic employees to deliver outstanding results.

In order to help facilitate conducive environments, to train our clients, and to offer a sustainable support network to our autistic colleagues, we employ our own in-house Job Coaches and Project Managers. Job Coaches can support from a social/communication angle as and when needed; Project Managers ensure work content is well-suited to our Consultants and that our clients are happy.

“We have back-office support from Project Managers and Job Coaches. This takes off some of the pressure if a difficult situation arises. The Job Coaches encourage Consultants to take regular time off, which helps to avoid the build up of anxiety or sensory overload. They also assist with prioritising tasks and ensure the workplace environment is comfortable.”

“I like to feel useful. Society is made up of people who make something bigger than themselves. And that means work. That means being able to contribute to a shared idea.”
