Every mind benefits from adjustments
Employers strive to cultivate a workplace environment tailored to the unique needs of their employees. Employees actively seek personalised support, enabling the ability to thrive. A significant challenge lies in providing adjustment strategies that cater to everyone’s needs.
Cognassist Personalised Workplace Adjustments
Tailored adjustments and strategies for both employees and their managers, carefully curated based on disclosure, job role and cognitive profile. Enable your teams by providing adjustment strategies for everyone.
Did you know? If your organisation has actual or constructive knowledge of an employee’s neurodifferences, you have a duty to implement reasonable adjustments to prevent the individual from facing unreasonable challenges or direct discrimination at work.
Level Based Adjustments and Strategies
Employees can get instant access to personalised workplace adjustments based on disclosing a neurodifference. For example, if disclosing through the Cognassist Neurodifference Disclosure Framework, that the employee has ADHD, personalised adjustments are shared.
Employees can get instant access to personalised workplace adjustments based on providing detail around the type of role an employee works in.
Instant personalised adjustments mean the employee can take action and immediately enhance how they work.
Our most advanced personalised workplace adjustments are tailored to the employee’s results from taking the Cognassist Cognitive Diversity Assessment.
Our Cognitive mapping doesn’t result in labels, even for those with a neurodiversity, it shows people their natural processing bias and thinking differences. You can’t compare one person to another.
Enable every employee to understand their own cognition, and crucially act on it with Level 3 personalised adjustments.
The Disclosure Dilemma
How do you provide appropriate adjustments when you don’t know if an employee has a neurodifference?
Employees need to be able to access support, even if they do not disclose. With Cognassist you can provide immediate support to your colleagues while they maintain complete confidentiality with regards to their neurodifference. This is made possible by the Cognassist Neurodifference Disclosure Framework.
Personalised Workplace Adjustments: Benefits to the Organisation
✓ Increased Productivity
Workplace adjustments can often be cost-effective compared to the expenses associated with recruiting, hiring, and training new employees. Accommodations can help retain valuable existing talent.
✓ Legal Compliance
As stated in the Equality Act 2010, an employer must make reasonable adjustments when a policy, practice or criteria puts a neuro-minority individual at a substantial disadvantage compared to someone who is not a neuro-minority. Meeting these legal obligations helps organisations avoid legal issues and fosters a positive reputation.
✓ Cost Savings
Without disclosure, an organisation cannot truly understand the diversity profile of the workforce. The Cognassist Neurodifference Disclosure Framework provides the anonymous/protected data collection mechanism to populate a Neurodifference dashboard so you can be aware of the true diversity profile.
✓ Talent Retention:
With the Cognassist platform an organisation can confidently say they provide all employees the opportunity for support, even if they are not yet ready to disclose.
✓ Enhance EDI Reputation internally and externally
Demonstrating a commitment to diversity and inclusion can enhance the company’s reputation both internally and externally. It can create a more positive workplace culture, improve employee morale, and attract a wider range of talent.
