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 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 is not autistic people who need to change – it is the work environment that needs to be more understanding, aware, and respectful of different ways of thinking. It often only takes minor adjustments, or an understanding line manager, to allow autistic employees to deliver outstanding results.
In order to help facilitate a supportive environment, we employ our own in-house job coaches and line managers who train our clients, and to offer a sustainable support network to our consultants. Job coaches provide support from a social, communication and well-being perspective as and when needed whereas line managers ensure work content is well-suited to our consultants and that our clients are happy.
