The Neurodiversity Stream

Levyl is proud to partner with Xceptional to bring our Neurodiversity stream to life.

Neurodiversity stream 

The Neurodiversity stream uplifts and diversifies the representation, visibility and inclusion of Neurodiverse people in People & Culture teams. It is dedicated to securing meaningful employment opportunities for Neurodiverse candidates within forward-thinking and inclusive organisations.

Levyl and Xceptional

We believe that we can achieve real impact through the High Potential Program with the companies we forge strong partnerships with, furthered by the support of our external specialist partners.

Levyl is excited to partner with Xceptional to bring to life our Neurodivergent Stream.

Through our partnership we will support organisations in attracting, recruiting and retaining Neurodiverse P&C professionals.

About Levyl

Through our High Potential Program we have identified seven different diversity pillars, one is the Neurodivergent pillar. Our intent is to use our unique four-stage framework as a guide in building bespoke consulting streams to allow for identified P&C hires for each diversity pillar.

  • We seek to challenge bias in recruitment and encourage our clients to think differently about every vacancy they fill.

  • We are motivated to drive a stronger connection between internal DE&I teams and frontline hiring managers.

  • We take pride in the promotion and creation of progressive search and selection method

About Xceptional

Xceptional stands at the forefront of promoting neurodiversity inclusion, recognising and valuing the exceptional skills and perspectives that neurodivergent individuals contribute to the workplace. As experts in recruitment, training, and creating inclusive environments, Xceptional tirelessly champions the visibility, understanding, and acceptance of the neurodiverse community. By doing so, Xceptional ensures that neurodivergent talents are not just recognised but celebrated, enabling them to thrive and innovate in their respective fields with confidence and pride.

How does it work?

The consulting streams are structured around a four-stage framework, ensuring a comprehensive and inclusive approach:

  • Step 1: Role Design & Search Consultation: We begin with a detailed consultation to understand your needs and tailor the recruitment process accordingly. This stage may be complimented by workshops, guides, resources and inclusion assessments.

  • Step 2: Recruitment Journey: Through a targeted search and selection process, we identify and engage potential candidates, move through the shortlist, interview, feedback and offer journey, ensuring a strong match is achieved.

  • Step 3: Post Placement Onboarding and Support: Following a successful placement, we offer continued support that may take the form of coaching, mentoring, onboarding work and projects to ensure a smooth transition for both the new employee and organisation.

  • Step 4: Process Evaluation: The final stage involves an evaluation of the process and the outcomes, modifications made, challenges experienced, and opportunities identified. We use this stage as a means of determining how we can further meaningful work on DEI and perhaps work into EVP, advocacy or awareness exercises.

The type of roles we recruit

Our approach is designed to not only fill positions but to enrich organisations with the diversity of thought, experience, and perspective that Neurodiverse individuals bring to the table.

Our partnership specialises in filling a wide range of roles within the People and Culture (P&C) spectrum. From early career positions to mid and senior-level management roles, as well as identified Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) jobs. Our focus is on ensuring these opportunities are accessible to Neurodivergent professionals.

The Business Case For Inclusive Recruitment of Neurodivergent communities

Integrating neurodivergent talent into the workforce offers significant advantages both ethically and from a business perspective. Research shows that neurodivergent individuals outperform their neurotypical peers by being 48% faster and 92% more productive, enhancing operational efficiency. Teams with neurodiverse members experience over a 30% increase in productivity and creativity, driving innovation.

Attributes associated with conditions like autism, dyslexia, and ADHD, such as pattern recognition, attention to detail, problem-solving, and a high level of focus, make neurodivergent individuals particularly valuable in analytical and high-pressure roles.

With up to 15% of the global population being neurodivergent, embracing neurodiversity not only enlarges the talent pool but also significantly boosts business performance and innovation.
