Genius Within CIC, an organisation that specialises in the workplace support of adults with neuro differences has won recognition from the Employability Related Services Association (ERSA), for demonstrating exceptional commitment in supporting jobseekers with disabilities and health conditions to achieve sustained employment.
Nancy Doyle, occupational psychologist and the CEO of Genius Within states, “The employment statistics for people with neuro-differences signal a drastic need for change. 28% of unemployed people and 40-60% of people who are incarcerated are dyslexic. Only 15% of people with Autism have a job. Many talented individuals are missing out on opportunities for satisfying employment and many organisations are not benefiting from their skills. We hope to champion positive assessment and work with people to turn their strengths into career success.”
Genius Within is passionate about developing talent and achieving success with hidden disability, including ADHD, autism, dyslexia, Tourette’s Syndrome, mental health and conditions such as MS. The organisation uses innovative design, research and campaigning alongside direct client work which sees 50% of all supported individuals finding sustainable employment based on their unique strengths. Through robust evaluation and benchmarking, 90% of Genius Within’s successful jobseekers are still with the same employer after one year, with 24% promoted within that timescale. The organisation supports over 700 unemployed individuals and 2,000 employed (but at risk) clients per annum.
