Durham's Esh Group lands national Prince of Wales' Responsible Business Award

Durham's Esh Group lands national Prince of Wales' Responsible Business Award

Construction firm Esh Group has scooped a national award for part of its work with schools.

The Durham-headquartered group won the Award for Education at the Prince of Wales’ Responsible Business Awards, an annual event which seeks to celebrate companies that make a positive contribution to society.

Esh Group, which employs 1,200 people, pipped major business names such as British Land and law firm Hogan Lovells to the accolade, which recognises business-school programmes that are about building life chances for young people.

The firm’s pioneering Get into STEM scheme was chosen by judges for its work in helping introduce children to science, technology, engineering and maths skills and associated careers.

Esh Group’s head of corporate responsibility and added value, Darush Dodds, collected the award in front of hundreds of guests at the O2 in London.

He said: “Get into STEM is Esh Group’s response to an industry skills shortage across STEM subjects.
