It is registered as a non-profit social enterprise with a board of directors from the community, but operates as a for-profit business that CEO Garth Johnson prefers to describe as a “for-purpose” business, saying its purpose is “to create employment opportunities for gifted people with autism.”Meticulon’s primary focus is providing solutions to real business problems. It starts by analyzing the needs of its clients, then works to find a consultant who can meet those needs. All of its consultants have autismAccording to Johnson, as long as they are hired to meet real business needs, people with disabilities are well suited to small and medium enterprises (SMEs) where the biggest challenge is often costly employee turnover. “People with disabilities stay at their jobs longer, work harder and feel better about their jobs. Typically, they are reliable and don’t take unnecessary sick days. At the same time, they are role models whose positive attitudes can change workplace culture. They may even cause others to use fewer benefits. Thanks to our rigorous assessment for workplace/consultant fit, our people love what they do and excel at it.”.
