A New Approach

Potentia brings together decades of experience in workforce optimization and recruitment, along with experts in the field of Autism, to provide employers with a roadmap of how to interview, onboard and manage a neurodiverse workforce.  Companies who have made investments in this area report lower turnover, higher productivity and improved employee engagement.  We are focused on those outcomes for our clients and committed to a better future for our applicants.

Given the explosion in new cases of individuals affected by Autism in the last 20 years, substantial investments in research and treatment have followed.  Early diagnosis and therapies, especially Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy have helped individuals to progress through high school, and often college, with increased success.

But with few exceptions, employers have not benefitted from the talents of this community.

Potentia focuses on matching top employers with individuals with Autism. In particular, Potentia has developed an applicant pool of candidates on the “high functioning” portion of the Autism Spectrum including individuals affected by a condition known as Asperger’s Syndrome.  Candidates with these conditions can often display some amount of social awkwardness, as well as difficulty with certain types of tasks, instructions and work environments.  These individuals are also typically very reliable, honest, hard-working and passionate about doing quality work.
