Hosted by Disability:IN, the Autism @ Work Employer Roundtable is a collective of businesses that have been running autism-focused hiring initiatives for at least one year. Participating companies include Cintas, DXC Technology, EY, Fidelity, Ford, Freddie Mac, IBM, JPMorgan Chase, Microsoft, Rising Tide Car Wash, SAP, Spectrum, Travelers, Ultra Testing and Willis Towers Watson. Together, they provide support for autism-focused hiring initiatives and aim to highlight the benefits of such initiatives.
The Employer Roundtable has recently published the “Autism @ Work Playbook” in collaboration with the University of Washington Information School. The Playbook offers insights from Employer Roundtable members to help employers explore new approaches to identifying talent and generating meaningful employment opportunities. The playbook provides on topics including recruitment planning, program resourcing, interviewing and training processes, onboarding, retention and more.
