I had the good fortune of attending a business conference sponsored by the Autism Society of MN (AuSM) last night. Temple spoke, but to me the most inspiring talks were by representatives of Best Buy, 3M and Cargill. All three companies are now looking for and hiring people on the spectrum for their unique strengths and values. Based on their success stories, clearly it's paying off.
Hopefully, this "good news" will be heard by the HR departments of any business needing reliable, honest, intelligent, skilled employees.
