SAP in autism-focused recruitment drive

July 2013

The German computer software giant SAP has launched a recruitment drive to attract people with autism to join it as software testers.

“Only by employing people who think differently and spark innovation will SAP be prepared to handle the challenges of the 21st Century,” commented SAP’s board member for human resources, Luisa Delgado.

Now, American finance company Freddie Mac has advertised paid internships aimed specifically at autistic students or new graduates.

Both organisations maintain they hope to harness the unique talents of autistic people as well as giving people previously marginalised in the workforce a chance to flourish.
