Hogan Assessments, Spectrum Fusion, Fast Forward Analytics Collaborating to Build a Neurodiverse Workforce
Hogan Assessments, Spectrum Fusion, and Fast Forward Analytics have teamed up to identify the strengths and skills of adults on the autism spectrum and create innovative solutions to bring their talents to the workplace and build a neurodiverse workforce. The new initiative is the first of its kind.
“We are looking to ensure fair and effective assessment solutions to help the autism community and the global workforce as a whole.”
The study will administer Hogan’s suite of workplace personality assessments, used by corporations across the globe, to a group of individuals on the autism spectrum. The aim of the study is to identify the strengths of adults on the autism spectrum and to leverage this knowledge to help these individuals find paths to meaningful work in the global economy.
“The challenge lies in administering effective and meaningful assessments when building a neurodiverse workforce,” Spectrum Fusion Founder and CEO Heidi Stieglitz Ham, Ph.D., said. “Individuals on the autism spectrum tend to present with an uneven cognitive profile, so capturing their skills and talents on typical workplace evaluations has proven to be challenging. This research is a first step toward understanding how organizations can improve their neurodiversity by highlighting the personality and cognitive strengths of autistic adults.”
