Emrill has been awarded the CSR Label by Dubai Chamber for the tenth consecutive year. Emrill was the first facilities management services provider to receive the award in 2012, and has achieved the CSR Label more times than any other FM provider in the UAE.
The CSR Label, awarded in a virtual ceremony held on February 24, 2022, is given to organisations that have demonstrated outstanding performance across key criteria, including workplace, marketplace, community and environment. Since its launch in 2010, the Dubai Chamber CSR Labels have become the highest recognition for corporate social responsibility (CSR) efforts by UAE businesses.
Stuart Harrison, Emrill’s CEO, expressed the importance of the CSR Label to Emrill, saying: “Being awarded the CSR Label by Dubai Chamber for the tenth year in a row demonstrates Emrill’s ongoing commitment to responsible business practices. This commitment extends beyond Emrill’s people and clients to our suppliers, the communities in which we operate and the environment. Emrill is dedicated to creating amazing places in which people can work, live and visit, and we are delighted to be recognised for achieving our aims safely and sustainably.”
In its assessment of Emrill’s performance in 2021, Dubai Chamber recognised Emrill’s key strengths, which included the consistent improvement of the organisation’s human resources policies and practices. Over the course of the year, Emrill held several events and launched initiatives to increase employee engagement and happiness, including Emrill’s Employee Carnival, which took place as a hybrid event in 2021. Other noteworthy achievements included the organisation’s ongoing commitment to the health, safety and mental wellbeing of employees. In addition to health webinars, campaigns and vaccination drives, Emrill also expanded its use of virtual methods to increase and further enable employee learning and development.
Emrill’s commitment extends to its suppliers. The organisation continued the implementation of Emrill’s sustainable procurement policy, covering environmental protection, sustainable product selection, engaging with local suppliers, facilitating the education of suppliers and Emrill’s supplier welfare scheme.
Harrison concluded: “Participating in the CSR Label by Dubai Chamber is a fantastic opportunity to take stock of what we are doing as an organisation for our people, our clients and the community. It takes account of everything we are doing including but also beyond our day-to-day operations. It gives me great pride to see Emrill’s excellent people being recognised for their charitable and volunteering solutions, as well as everyone’s efforts in creating a happier, healthier community.”
Emrill’s commitment to delivering world-class FM services and unrivalled customer services has enabled the organisation to win several prestigious contracts, including providing integrated FM services for Deep Dive Dubai, Heriot-Watt University and the W Residences – the Palm, marking the company’s expansion into target growth sectors.
