Baltimore Consulting join the Neurodiversity in Business (NiB) initiative

Yesterday, on 22nd March, the Neurodiversity in Business (NiB) initiative was launched at the Houses of Parliament.

NiB are a business led forum to share best practice with regards to Neurodiversity recruitment, retention and empowerment.

We work within vulnerable subject areas such as SEN, mental health and adults and children’s safeguarding, making a difference to people’s lives within the community with every placement we make. It’s our bread and butter.

However, whilst diversity and inclusivity is integral to our culture here at Baltimore Consulting, but we know that there is always more to be done internally. It’s a continual work in progress; we don’t claim to be the best, but we are not standing still, and we make every effort to improve.

We’ve signed Baltimore Consulting up to the initiative, helping us to build a better workplace for Neurodivergent employees, access Neurodivergent talent and support Neurodivergent people to navigate independent, fulfilling careers.

We value the opinions of all our staff, and we make decisions based on a unified voice through our internal EDI forum. As an employer, we value equality and we celebrate our differences, so this is such an incredibly positive step for us in our improvement journey.

Baltimore Consulting are joining a number of the UK’s leading employers and thought leaders in Neurodiversity, from Homes England to IBM.

It’s simple; NiB’s aim is to ultimately improve conditions for Neurodivergent people in employment, with a vision to foster a corporate environment where Neurodivergent people are understood and form an invaluable part of the work culture.

By creating a best-practice business community, NiB can share indispensable insight for:

Employers Create awareness as to the benefits and strengths of neurodiversity in the workplace. The Neurodivergent Empowerment, recognition, help and guidance to navigate a successful, happy and independent career path.​ The Neurotypical To have a better understanding and facilitate allyship and respect with neurodivergent colleagues.
