The Outstanding Achievement Award for ‘Embracing Diversity’ recognises the comprehensive diversity programme implemented across EMC’s operations in Ireland.
This Survey is widely recognised as Ireland’s most comprehensive study of workplace culture, and offers superb national and international benchmarking, learning, and networking opportunities to all who take part.
