I recently found a new service aiming to help with neurodiversity unemployment.
Its called Mentra.
Our Platform - We're making the workforce accessible
Mentra is a neurodivergent-friendly talent platform that intelligently matches neurodiverse individuals with employers that value their strengths. Mentra puts recruiters in front of candidates rather than forcing them to navigate through the challenging process of finding a job. How? Through humantistic AI and community-driven design.
Mentra’s key innovation lies in its matching algorithm that learns from an employer’s hiring needs and neurodiverse candidate’s strengths to create career success. What’s different? Mentra’s AI goes well beyond traditional job requirements by integrating a holistic understanding of the individual’s personality, environmental preferences, skill levels and ideal job.
In the race to find the best candidate for the job, one of the most overlooked ways employers can attract diverse and quality talent is through a well-written job description
Hiring neurodivergent talent is a central part of an inclusive hiring strategy.
Precise, inclusive language and transparency of expectations and work environments/accommodations are pivotal in attracting top, diverse talent
Allow the flexibility of a human-centered hiring approach instead of relying on automated software to filter out candidates to ensure you're not missing key marginalized groups
As a by-product of universal design, by choosing to be inclusive of all talent, neurodivergent or otherwise, you will be creating a better experience for all candidates, allowing you to filter and attract the best possible talent for your roles.
