At Potentia, we help leading companies to “think differently” – about their recruitment strategies, their workforce, and their ability to affect positive social change in the communities in which they live and work.
Potentia is a Social Enterprise dedicated to helping leading companies to optimize their workforce by leveraging a particular kind of applicant pool diversity – neurodiversity – and benefitting from the unique strengths of those individuals to enhance their bottom line. In so doing, employers can harness the power of this talented workforce as a competitive advantage.
At Potentia, our Mission is twofold:
- To help companies to run better by leveraging the enormous talents of individuals on the Autism Spectrum.
- To partner with great companies to provide more meaningful career opportunities for applicants who Think Differently.
