Talent shortages are at a 15-year high as organisations struggle to hire the staff they need to drive post-pandemic economic recovery. Yet many employers are overlooking and undervaluing a significant pool of talent that could be instrumental in meeting the changing demands of the world of work: those with dyslexia.
It is estimated that by 2025 humans and machines will split work 50-50, transforming the skills employers need. Soft skills, like analytical thinking, initiative-taking, empathy and communication, will be more highly valued and sought after than ever before as they’ll be the backbone of success and these are the very skills associated with dyslexic thinking. Employers need to unleash dyslexic talent – or risk being left behind.
Talent Solutions and Made By Dyslexia, a non-profit organisation helping the world understand, value and support people with dyslexia, have joined forces to develop a better understanding of dyslexic thinking in the workplace and to encourage organisations to recognise its importance in a fast changing world.
