Coaching in the work place
Workplace Coaching helps companies to retain Neurodiverse Talent
Our workplace coaching is goal orientated and solution-focused: Helping neurodiverse employees to succeed in the work environment. This enables them to achieve their potential and overcome barriers due to their disabilities.
We help individuals to identify their strengths and challenges and develop strategies to navigate their work environment. This, in turn, can lead to improved performance, communication, and career advancement.
Additionally, coaching can promote staff retention, and a more inclusive workplace culture. Research has shown that with the right support, neurodiverse employers can utilise exceptional talent. This gives organisations a competitive edge due to the diversity of skills, creativity, and approaches to problem solving.
Companies that are nurturing the unique talents of its employees are creating innovative and successful organisations in the long term.
UK Government Access To Work Scheme
The Access to Work scheme is a government funded initiative that provides a grant to support people who have a physical or mental health condition or a disability. This includes those with Autism, ADHD and other neurodiverse conditions.
It is aimed at removing work-related barriers and helps to pay for things like coaching/mentoring support to help you in the workplace.
Whilst access to assistance does not require a formal diagnosis - having a diagnosis significantly helps.
To qualify for Access To Work support, you must fulfil the following four criteria:
Have a physical or mental health condition or disability that means you need support to do your job, or get to and from work.
Be 16 or over.
Be in paid work (or be about to start or return to paid work in the next 12 weeks), even when working from home.
Be employed or self-employed.
Live and work (or be about to start or return to work) in England, Scotland or Wales. You cannot get Access to Work if you live in the Channel Islands or the Isle of Man. There’s also a different system in Northern Ireland.
A paid job can be full or part-time and can include:
a work placement
You cannot get Access to Work support for voluntary work.
Your workplace can include your home if you work from there some or all of the time. It will not affect any other benefits you receive and you will not have to pay it back.
For support to be arranged and funded, you will need to disclose your disability to your employer.
