Exertis marks World Autism Awareness Week

Exertis supported World Autism Awareness Week, a campaign driven by the National Autistic Society which took place 29 March – 4 April by hosting a number of awareness initiatives for its employees.

The company hosted an internal webinar for employees to spread awareness of the challenges faced by people with autism; offered staff the opportunity to take part in a free autism awareness training course hosted by Training2Care; and partnered with Portfield School, a specialist school run by charity Autism Wessex, local to its Christchurch office.

HR Director Jo Lawrence, said: “We’re always working to find new ways to make sure our colleagues feel valued, included, and celebrated. An inclusive and diverse workplace allows everyone an opportunity to be heard, and helps our people feel comfortable being themselves at work.”
