Partnership to hire people on autism spectrum

Embodying the characteristics of the autism stories I like -- an emphasis on possibilities and talents related to autism -- German software giant SAP is partnering with Specialisterne -- Danish for “The Specialists” -- to hire people on the autism spectrum.

As reported by Katie Moisse for ABC:

“‘By concentrating on the abilities that every talent brings to the table, we can redefine the way we manage diverse talents,’ SAP executive board member Luisa Delgado said in a statement. ‘With Specialisterne, we share a common belief that innovation comes from the ‘edges.’ Only by employing people who think differently and spark innovation will SAP be prepared to handle the challenges of the 21st century.’”
