Something called neurodiversity has been growing in American companies. An accounting firm EY (formerly known as Ernst & Young) has created a program to hire people on the autism spectrum. They are doing this for the benefits of having workers with different abilities such as greater productivity and to create a more talented working environment.
According to a study by Drexel University, 58% of young adults with autism don’t have a job, but many of them have skills that businesses are looking for such as the ability to focus over a long period of time, attention to little details, looking over data, dealing with mathematical concepts, and looking at large bodies of information and spotting out differences. Right now or EY has four employees that are autistic who are working as accountants. Two other companies I’ve also been hiring people with Autism they are HP Enterprises and Microsoft.
