German Software Firm to Hire Hundreds of Workers with Autism

A German software giant has announced it intends to employ hundreds of people with autism as software testers and programmers in a global drive over the next seven years.

SAP, which has already launched pilot projects in India and Ireland, said that the move aimed to find workers "who think differently" in the hopes that this would lead to innovative ideas and advances.
By 2020, one percent of SAP's currently 65,000-strong workforce is expected to be affected by autism, a company spokesman told the AFP news agency.
