Oops! I’m Biased: ADHD in Recruitment

ADHD in Recruitment: How to make the recruitment process more inclusive for candidates with ADHD

ADHD remains an obscure condition despite growing discourse around it in professional networks. Not only do many individuals go undiagnosed, but it comes with its misconceptions about how people with ADHD perform in the workplace. And this is why Tori Graham, Talent Partner at Bother, became an advocate for herself and the community of (recruitment) professionals with ADHD. Charlotte Melkert talks to Tori Graham about her own journey with ADHD, advantages and disadvantages, the recruitment process from a candidate’s perspective who has ADHD, the inclusive practices for neurodivergent candidates for recruitment, mistakes and a valuable resource that has significantly improved Tori’s working relationships.
