Exertis Joins Neurodiversity in Business Forum, Launches Sunflower Lanyards

Exertis is making strides in fostering diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in its workplace environment. By aligning with the Neurodiversity in Business (NiB) forum and launching the Sunflower Lanyards initiative company-wide, Exertis underscores its dedication to supporting disabled and neurodivergent individuals. Moreover, achieving Level 1 Disability Confident Employer status further solidifies its commitment to advancing diversity standards. These initiatives, driven by the ‘Enable’ Employee Resource Group, underscore Exertis’ determination to cultivate an inclusive work culture. In a recent development, Exertis has become a member of the NiB forum, a move aimed at championing neurodiversity within the workplace. Spearheaded by CEO Dan Harris, NiB brings together neurodivergent specialists and leading corporations to improve opportunities for neurodiverse employees. Harris expressed delight in Exertis’s involvement, noting its dedication to

fostering inclusivity. Complementing its NiB membership, Exertis has introduced Sunflower Lanyards across its sites, serving as a symbol of support for colleagues with both visible and hidden disabilities. This initiative aims to raise awareness and provide additional assistance where needed. Furthermore, Exertis’s attainment of Level 1 Disability Confident Employer status underscores its commitment to diversity and inclusion. This recognition equips the company with the skills to effectively recruit, retain, and develop disabled employees. Behind these advancements is the tireless advocacy of Exertis’ ‘Enable’ Employee Resource Group (ERG), a community dedicated to supporting disabled and neurodivergent employees and their caregivers. Tim Griffin, CEO of Exertis IT, lauded the ERG’s efforts in driving progress, emphasising the organisation’s commitment to a diverse and inclusive workforce.
