Neurodiversity is envisaged to benefit organizations by contributing to outcomes such as quality and innovation. However, to enable neurodiverse individuals to thrive within organisations, existing human resource/diversity management practices, otherwise successful, may not be fungible within the context of neurodiversity. Drawing on climate for inclusion theory, this conceptual paper aims to develop a conceptual model that enables organizations to effectively manage and optimize the performance of both neurodiverse and neurotypical employees using more discerning human resource diversity management practices. In doing so, we unpack and finesse which organisational HRM practices enhance the work experiences of neurodiverse employees thereby creating a work climate that is inclusive of neurodiverse stakeholders. We further create a new trajectory of research in organisational justice literature by exploring and integrating the perception of fairness of these human resource diversity management practices by neurodiverse employees, and how these are moderated by strategic leaders. Our research provides new insights by integrating neurodiversity within the diversity management field, exploring diversity management practices that are beneficial for both neurodiverse and neurotypical employees using ethical and social justice discourse, and by offering a dynamic conceptual model to serve as an initial framework to inform and guide future research.
