Tyson launches program to address needs of disabled, neurodivergent employees

As part of its commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace, Tyson Foods Inc. partnered with Joshin, a Minneapolis-based company that works with employers to provide support for disabled and neurodivergent workers. The partnership is a pilot program designed to enhance inclusivity throughout Tyson’s workforce, joining other Joshin clients that include companies like Best Buy and Spring Health. The program is designed to address the needs of disabled employees, including those with non-visible disabilities, from the recruitment and hiring process and throughout their employment. Joshin said it will offer Tyson services that include the availability of specialized care and navigation, one-on-one coaching and training and resources that are focused on the special needs of workers who are neurodivergent and disabled.

We work hard each day to advance diversity, equity and inclusion in the workplace with actions that will positively impact all team members and create a legacy of belonging for the future. This partnership with Joshin gives us the tools and resources to have a more open dialogue with team members and build connectivity across the company.
