German software firm SAP is recruiting autistic workers. To help the company hire autistic workers, SAP has hired Specialisterne. Together, SAP and Specialisterne will recruit individuals with autism that can work as software testers, programmers and data quality assurance specialists.
SAP, which employs more than 65,000 people worldwide, is confident that there is a competitive advantage to recruiting autistic workers, as these individuals have unique talents that are underutilized in the workforce. SAP also hopes that this program helps people with autism link up with an employer that will give them the type of work opportunities they need.
