Company News, News

JSM Group is delighted to announce our membership of the Employers' Initiative on Domestic Abuse (EIDA), a leading business network that supports employers to take action on domestic abuse.  

EIDA works with employers to help them implement effective internal policies on domestic abuse, as well as providing awareness and signposting to up to date resources.

We are committed to raising awareness of the terrible impact of domestic abuse, to supporting our employees affected by domestic abuse, as well as to encouraging other employers to take action.

Emma Dormer, Group HR Director, said:

“JSM Group is proud to join EIDA. Imagine if every employer made their employees aware of the signs of domestic abuse, provided appropriate support to their employees and told them how to seek relevant, effective help. That sort of wide-scale, societal impact requires informed action by business leaders, supported by EIDA with their guidance and resources.

“We are proud that JSM group is making a positive social impact by joining EIDA’s network.”

Susan Bright, CEO of The Employer’s Initiative on Domestic Abuse, added:

“We are delighted to welcome the JSM team to our network, [particularly to expand our network deeper into the construction industry]. The important role that employers can play in tackling domestic abuse has become even more apparent during the Covid pandemic. The commitment from employers in supporting their own employees whilst also inspiring other employers to do the same will help us to achieve our vision of every UK employer taking action on domestic abuse.”

Through awareness generation, building relationships and the sharing of best practice, JSM Group and EIDA are hoping to support a systematic change to the way domestic abuse is handled.
