You need to use FOR XML PATH, like this:
;WITH r AS (
SELECT EmpID, 
    (STUFF((SELECT DISTINCT ',' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(100),P1.RoleID) AS [text()]
            FROM Table1 P1
            WHERE P1.EmpID = P.EmpID 
            FOR XML PATH('')), 1, 1, '')) AS Roles
FROM Table1 P
GROUP BY EmpID)
SELECT Roles, 
    (STUFF((SELECT DISTINCT ',' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(100),r1.EmpID) AS [text()]
            FROM r r1
            WHERE r1.Roles = r.Roles 
            FOR XML PATH('')), 1, 1, '')) AS Empls
FROM r
GROUP BY Roles
HAVING COUNT(*) > 1 -- comment this line if you want to include the sets with employees for whom no matching pairs found
