ManpowerGroup Talent Solutions and Made By Dyslexia, a non-profit organization helping the world understand, value and support people with dyslexia, have joined forces to develop a better understanding of dyslexic thinking in the workplace and to encourage organizations to recognize its importance in a fast-changing world.
The evolving nature of work, with greater focus on automation being used to fulfill many technical roles and tasks, means that soft skills will continue to be in high demand. These trends put those with dyslexia in a prime position given that they often possess in-demand soft skills.
