Use of Company Vehicles

Three of McHugh's core values are safety, respect, and integrity. These values apply not only to our business dealings with clients, subcontractors, and each other but to the public in general. Our code of conduct instructs employees to regularly ask ourselves some simple questions - Are my actions legal? Is this in the best interest of McHugh? Am I being honest and responsive? How would this look in the media? - And to keep in mind that failure to comply with the company's code of conduct can have serious consequences including potential fines, criminal liability for the company, and potential damage to McHugh's reputation.

On September 27 at approximately 4:45 PM, our human resources department received a call reporting that a company vehicle - a white pickup truck with the McHugh logo - was speeding northbound on I-57 near Champaign at over 100 miles per hour.

From time to time, we receive reports from the general public about a company vehicle speeding, driving aggressively, weaving, and/or tailgating. We would like to remind those who drive a company vehicle - logoed or not - that you have been given a privilege. As stated in the company vehicle policy: The conditions of that privilege are that you must obey all motor vehicle laws, maintain the vehicle properly at all times and follow the rules and procedures of this policy. This privilege can, and will, be taken away if you fail to abide by the laws and rules of the road.

If you are unfamiliar with McHugh's auto policy or with our code of conduct, please contact Natalie Pedraza at 312-821-0344.
