Interactive Workshop: Getting RECRUITMENT

July 15 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm NZST


How to Attract & Recognise Neurodiverse Talent

Local talent is out there! In Getting RECRUITMENT you learn how to attract and recognise the untapped talent in New Zealand that will make a difference for your business.

We start by identifying the cognitive thinking that will best suit different roles and teams.  Then we write job descriptions, job ads to match them and create interview questions that will bring out the best during the interview process.  Next, we challenge the unconscious biases we all have so we see the true potential and opportunities when reviewing applications and meeting candidates.

Neurodivergent people can provide key insights, skills and unique ways of thinking to a business. With small changes to recruitment will make all the difference.

Alternatively, some applicants may not have the experience you think you need, however international research shows when we know what type of thinking you need i.e., neurodiversity, you understand how they can learn best, and you put the systems and processes in place they can learn in half the time and be 40 – 138% more productive than the your neurotypical recruit.  While other neurodiversity’s ability to big picture system design is phenomenal and can create opportunities for growth you may never have dreamed of.

Learning how to build ‘true’ psychological safety so your employees can bring their authentic selves to work every day builds mental health and wellbeing, employee engagement, productivity, and innovation.

Many of these skills are key to hiring for any role. We all have diverse brains and having a neurodiverse approach to hiring can result in finding incredible employees.

Interactive Workshop

This workshop is focused on expanding skills learnt in earlier sessions.  At the conclusion of this programme individuals will learn how to:

  • Identify the brain wiring you need for the role you have
  • Write job descriptions and job ads to ensure you attract the talent that best suits the role to ensure success for the individual and the team
  • Recognise the brain wiring you are looking for in a phone or face-to-face interview
  • Create ‘true’ psychological safety during the interview so you bring out the best in your applicant

During the workshop individuals will build an understanding of how to develop a Neurodiverse Recruitment toolbox for their organisation.

As they did in the earlier Getting GOT programmes individuals will also pick one new skill to work on in the coming weeks. This can be seen as an opportunity to further refine the skill they previously worked on or choose a different area they have identified as having the opportunity for growth.
