St Barnabas Hospice is proud to announce that the charity has joined the Neurodiversity in Business Forum.

NiB is a business-led forum functioning as an industry group for organisations to share industry good practice on ND recruitment, retention and empowerment.

Neurodiversity describes the amazing variety in human neurology, thinking, communication styles and expression. Individuals who are Neurodiverse tend to exhibition traits attributed to conditions such as Autism Spectrum Conditions, ADHD, Dyslexia, Dyscalculia, Developmental Language Disorder and Dyspraxia.

The NiB organisation draws upon the cumulative knowledge of neurodivergent experts and leading companies to share best practice and improve the employment and experience of the neurodiverse workforce.

Speaking upon admission to NiB, Mandy Smith, Head of Human Resources said: “By signing up for the ‘Neurodiversity in Business Forum’, St Barnabas recognises that colleagues with neurological differences such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia, and other neurodivergent neurotypes, bring unique skills and perspectives to the Trust.

“The Human Resources team are in the process of implementing new measures and facilities within the workplace to support our neurodiverse colleagues, and to raise awareness of neurodiversity. We look forward to working with other organisations within NiB to continue to work towards ensuring the best in diversity and inclusion standards.”
