The Board considers the measuring and monitoring of employee engagement to be important indicators of the appropriateness of our people strategy; in particular the effectiveness of our communication, leadership and employee development. This year we have focused on consolidating and harmonising the businesses we have acquired to extend and embed our strong corporate culture, and successfully leverage the benefits of the diversity and skills in our teams.
In addition to our focus on safety, EML provides employees with the opportunity to access a range of benefits to promote health and wellbeing. These include flexible working arrangements and paid parental leave.
Progress is regularly reported to the Board and includes a focus on improving female representation in leadership and in roles traditionally occupied by males.
- promotion and leadership support for flexible working arrangements, including start-finish times, shift options, job sharing, work from home;
- reviewing our recruitment practices to identify areas of improvement with diversity hiring; and
- establishing a Diversity & Inclusion Committee to champion diversity awareness, flexible working and gender equality across the business.
