Why Are We Hiring Neurodivergents?

We view neurodiversity as a competitive advantage. Our approach to providing technology services is enhanced through diverse thinking. It’s this approach that helps us evaluate and solve technical issues for clients. For example, we may apply a stronger focus to complex data and systems, excel in roles involving repetitive tasks where attention to detail is vital, and demonstrate an ability to communicate in a voice not inhibited by bias.
