Supporting neurodivergent employees in the workplace

Our research from the 2023 Neurodiveristy Index Report found that employers are currently failing to support neurodivergent employees, and there is currently a lack of training available and awareness in most workplaces

As a follow up to that report, we are now excited to be launching the the 2024 Neurodiversity Index Report and we need your help!

Launching the 2024 Neurodiversity Index Report

The collective ambition of the Neurodiversity Index 2023 report, was to create a benchmark to help guide employers about what they should be doing to better support neurodiverse staff in the workplace & for employees to understand what they should expect from their employer.

12 months on, we’d like to know has the experience of neurodivergent employees in the workplace changed ? What changes have been made to make the workplace more neuroinclusive ? We need your help!

Join us by participating in the 2024 survey.

We’d like to encourage all employers of all organization sizes and individuals both neurodivergent and neurotypical to participate. For every survey filled, we are giving you the opportunity to make a pledge to build equity, claim a digital credential and share with your networks.

Help us to strive for inclusive workplaces and to help everyone realize their potential!

The 2023 Neurodiversity Index Report

Earlier this year, City & Guilds Foundation partnered with Professor. Amanda Kirby and Do-IT Solutions to launch the first Neurodiversity Index which, delving into how employers can better support people with neurodiverse traits, how organisations can improve their recruiting process to reach a new talent pool and create a more inclusive workplace.

Some key findings from the 2023 Neurodiversity Index report include:

Neurodiversity Index 2023


of neurodiverse employees able to disclose their condition in the workplace with a good or OK response.


of neurodivergent employees say they are impacted most days in the workplace by their condition.


felt as if they can’t disclose their neurodivergent condition in the workplace, with 10% of respondents having been met with a poor response once they have done so.


have neurodiversity champions or mentors, serving as advocates and allies and raising awareness of neurodiversity within the workplace.

2024 Survey & Digital Credentials

The data we collect through the 2024 survey will paint a picture of employers’ and individual’s experiences of supporting people with neuro-diverse traits in the workplace. We will then release the 2024 Neurodiversity Index report in partnership with Do-IT Solutions early next year with this data.

We are giving all participants of the survey the opportunity to make a pledge to building equity, claim a digital credential to share with your networks, as well as sign up to receive an email alert when the report is published in 2024.

In addition to completing the survey, we’d love if you could also share with your networks to participate – the more lived experience response we can get, the stronger the story our Index report will tell.

Following our first and inspiring ‘Train the Trainer’ event which championed neurodiversity, wellbeing and inclusion, work began on creating the trailblazing Neurodiversity Index Report.

In October 2022 we hosted a Neurodiversity Index Lunch and Learn with Professor Amanda Kirby which discusses the Neurodiversity Index and why it is vital to employers and employees alike.

We also held an event in July 2023 where we explored how to attract and retain neurodiverse talent which featured Professor Amand Kirby, Roberts Watts from Labcorb, and Charmain Bucho from City & Guilds. This roundtable was aimed at employers, training providers, HR professionals and managers to empower you with the knowledge and tools needed to create inclusive work environments that embrace the strengths of neurodivergent individuals.

At the City & Guilds Foundation, we are passionate about enabling each person to achieve their potential. By partnering with Do-IT Solutions on this, we aim to encourage and highlight best practice for enabling everyone to be successful in the workplace.

Neuroinclusive workplaces don’t just benefit neurodivergent individuals, they benefit all employees.

Neurodivergent people are estimated to make up 1 in 7 of the population in the UK, and when given the opportunity can bring fresh thinking to businesses that makes them more resilient and profitable. However, many face barriers when it comes to education, and training and getting into (and staying in) work. This is demonstrated in the fact that 30-40% of neurodivergent people are unemployed in the UK today.

To support more businesses to employ neurodivergent people, we carried out this important piece of research to find a benchmark for organisations to use and to consider what actions they should take to create a more inclusive workplace for all.”
