As the economy begins to recover from the worst of the pandemic, it seems like every company is looking to hire back employees lost during the last two years, and most are also looking to expand and grow. However, everyone keeps looking in the same talent pool, and there’s a developing competition to attract the best employees. It’s strange, therefore, that employment rates for autistic adults in British Columbia remain at their historically low levels. It’s estimated that of the 40,000 individuals of working age in the province, more than 80% are unemployed or underemployed, where they are in roles that don’t make use of their skills or experience. This represents a largely untapped pool of workers that bring a lot of strengths to the workplace to give your company a competitive edge.
