Supporting your employees with ADHD to fulfil their potential

ADHD is classed as a “Disability” under The Equality Act 2010. This means that, as an employer, you may be required to put in place reasonable adjustments to support your employees with ADHD at work. These can sometimes be funded by Access to Work.

Beyond obligations however, employees with ADHD often have particular strengths in areas such as: seeing the big picture; thinking outside the box; connecting ideas; 3D thinking; and general creativity. When properly supported, the skills of these ‘specialist thinkers’ can benefit your organisation and we have been helping employers to support their employees to work at their best since 2018.

The most common help is given in the form of the “Workplace Coaching Programme”. This means that one of our highly qualified coaches will work with your employee to identify what is working well, what is not working so well, and help them to develop strategies that are in themselves reasonable adjustments.

We also work with line managers, and whole organisations to raise awareness and improve communication. This approach can help manage your sickness absence rates and improve line management skills, both of which can in turn, lead to increased productivity.
