MANAGING in the

NEW WORLD

A pool of talent largely ignored until very recently, is being tapped into by the corporate world. Individuals suffering from autism were long considered unemployable but now it has been understood using several case studies that people who suffer from the same, often exhibit above average intelligence levels in certain fields. SAP is one of those companies what have stepped up recruitment of people with autism. These organizations team up with a Danish firm called Specialisterne that has around three-fourths of its employees afflicted with the malady. They have even developed a certification to prove that such individuals can be highly productive. So that these companies do not appear to be exploitative, they have arranged corporate training sessions with Specialisterne where these recruits undergo a five week programme and get certified. The word autism is instead getting replaced in the corporate world by the term neuro-diversity.
