ADHD stands for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. It is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects both children and adults. ADHD inclusion is absolutely important in the workplace for several reasons. Employees with ADHD bring unique perspectives, creativity, and quick thinking to the workplace, leading to increased productivity and engagement. Also, in many countries, ADHD is considered a disability protected by anti-discrimination laws, and employers have a legal obligation to provide reasonable accommodations. Overall, ADHD inclusion is essential to create a supportive and accepting work environment that benefits all employees.
