A human-centered design approach.
Based on our research initiated at Georgia Tech, the team has learned what data is instrumental to making or breaking a good job fit. We have spent over 2 years understanding the autism community to intimately understand pain points and success factors in a job position. Today, we are working with employers to examine and address barriers in the employment process.
Mentra's four profile areas ensure a successful fit.
