EM Highway Services has been recognised for its equality, diversity and inclusion (ED&I) within the workplace.
The company has become one of the first contractors within the highways industry to receive the Investors in Diversity accreditation.
Two years ago EM, a wholly owned subsidiary of international infrastructure and business services group Mouchel, committed to achieving Investors in Diversity to establish, consolidate and embed ED&I practices and behaviours across its organisation.
Managing director Dave Wright said: “EM is committed to its engaging and relevant approach to ED&I and to leaving a positive legacy for future generations. Our RESPECT initiative serves to engage with everyone affected by our activities and its aim is to bring ED&I to life; to understand that it will mean different things to different people and to embrace these differences through the principles and behaviours expected of all EM employees. We have set challenging goals but together with our clients and supply chain we will continuously develop ourselves to help set the ED&I agenda for the wider highways community and beyond.”
