If you don’t already know, Expandability is partnered with the Danish company Specialisterne, a socially innovative company that assesses, trains, and employs individuals diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder in the technology industry. Specialisterne’s Autism at Work program was founded by Thorkil Sonne, whose 17 year old son is autistic. Sonne recognized the valuable potential people diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder have in the workplace as data handlers and software testers because of their keen eye for detail, ability to solve complex problems, and low tolerance for error.
For the Autism at Work program, Expandability works as the liaison between qualified candidates and employers. Participants are evaluated in order to learn what jobs are the best fit for their skills, and employers are evaluated to determine which candidates are the best fit for their available positions. SAP and SuccessFactors are both participants in the Autism at Work program.
