Neurodiversity in the Workplace
Harnessing the Full Spectrum of Talent
Neurodiversity embraces the variety of ways people think, learn and behave. It is a component of inclusive design that addresses neurodevelopmental differences within our workforce in order to create environments that help all succeed.
Empowering All Employees
Good design is about supporting every person who comes through the door. Neurodivergent thinkers bring a broad set of valuable skills to any organization, including analytics, creativity and innovation.
At Tarkett, we’re committed to understanding the unique needs of everyone in a space, so we can design better products and better experiences for all.
Supporting Neurodiverse Talent
Neurodiverse employees bring unique perspectives and abilities to the table.
However, many face challenges in traditional workplace environments, such as sensory overload, difficulty with social cues, and communication barriers. That’s why it is critical for companies to consider neurodiverse talent’s needs to ensure all thrive at work.
By valuing the unique strengths and reducing the challenges of neurodiverse employees, companies can create a more successful workforce.
Designing for Inclusion
Choice enables people—neurodivergent and neurotypical alike—to more effectively manage their own needs with dignity and autonomy.
Versatile environments that provide for a range of preferences make differences less apparent, fostering equality and integration. These environments also allow for individual and operational changes, helping to make an organization more adaptable.
All aspects of the space, color, lighting, materiality, elements in the field of view and sensory stimuli need to be designed with purpose and intent.
How Flooring Supports Neurodiverse Environments
Ensuring a workspace that is welcoming and accessible to everyone means exploring various options when selecting flooring.
We’ve partnered with HOK to identify solutions for enhancing inclusion and productivity throughout the six modalities of work.
