The 2022 Top Employers have been announced and Mitie has been recognised as one of the UK’s Top Employers for the fourth year running.
Being certified as a Top Employer showcases Mitie’s dedication to a better world of work, through excellent HR policies and people practices. This includes its recent significant investment in its HR technology and processes.
A key highlight of Mitie’s entry was its ‘Count Me In’ learning programme aimed at promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace, which was selected by the Top Employers Institute for use in its Best Practice Report 2022. The report showcases exemplary diversity and inclusion practises.
The Top Employers Institute programme certifies organisations based on the participation and results of its HR Best Practices Survey. The survey covers six HR domains consisting of 20 topics including People Strategy, Work Environment, Talent Acquisition, Learning, Wellbeing and Diversity & Inclusion and more.
Jasmine Hudson, Group HR Director, Mitie, said:
“Our people are what make our business exceptional, so we’re incredibly proud to see Mitie named as one of the UK’s Top Employers for the fourth year running. We’re committed to ensuring that Mitie is a great place to work and will continue to invest in how we hire, develop, reward and engage our people, so that we are a leading UK business.”
David Plink, CEO, Top Employers Institute, said:
“Reflecting on the demanding year that has, like the year before it, impacted organisations across the world, Mitie has continued to show that it prioritises maintaining excellent people practices in the workplace. They continue to meet the challenges of the changing world of work while working tirelessly to make a positive impact on the lives of their workforce. We are pleased to celebrate and applaud the organisations that have been certified as Top Employers in their respective countries this year.”
The programme has certified and recognised more than 1,857 Top Employers in 123 countries/regions across five continents.
