Sandvik Mobile Crushers and Screens awarded Bronze Diversity Mark for workplace Diversity and Inclusion
SANDVIK Mobile Crushers and Screens have become the first engineering manufacturer in Northern Ireland (NI) to be awarded the Bronze Diversity Mark for commitment to Diversity and Inclusion in the workplace. With more than 350 employees, diversity and inclusion is a key strategic objective at the Co. Tyrone-based company’s Ballygawley Centre of Excellence.
Established in 2016, Diversity Mark NI is an independent, not-for-profit organization with more than 70 members from all business sectors across Northern Ireland. Its awards are independently assessed by a team of business experts who look for evidence of a target-driven approach to addressing gender diversity across an organization.
Andy McCullock, vice-president of Mobile Crushers and Screens, commented: ‘We are proud to have reached the high standards required for the Bronze Diversity Mark. This award is important to us as it not only acknowledges our achievements so far, but also demonstrates an ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion. Through the Charter Mark process, we’ve committed to promoting female representation in Sandvik Mobiles’ and building a positive inclusive culture.’
Eva Johansson, head of HR for Sandvik Crushing and Screening, said: ‘I recognize the commitment of the local organization in Northern Ireland, and their dedication to striving for a culture of inclusiveness to benefit all employees. We value diversity and are dedicated to creating a working environment that’s inclusive, where everyone feels safe, supported and free to be themselves.’
