The 2022 Top Employers have just 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 Human Resources (HR) policies and people practices. This includes the company’s recent (and 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, Well-Being and Diversity and Inclusion (and more).
Jasmine Hudson, Group HR director at 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 in succession. 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’re a leading UK business.”
David Plink, CEO at the Top Employers Institute, commented: “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. The business continues to meet the challenges of the changing world of work, while working tirelessly to make a positive impact on the lives of its workforce. We’re pleased to celebrate and applaud the organisations that have been certified as Top Employers in their respective countries this year.”
The Top Employers Institute is the global authority on recognising excellence in people practices. The organisation helps to accelerate these practices to “enrich the world of work”. Through the Top Employers Institute Certification Programme, participating companies can be validated, certified and recognised as an employer of choice.
Established over 30 years ago, the Top Employers Institute has certified over 1,857 organisations in 123 countries/regions. These certified Top Employers positively impact the lives of over eight million employees globally.
Founded back in 1987, Mitie’s job is to look after those places where Britain works.

Mitie’s Specialist Services (care and custody, landscapes and waste management) division serves both the public and private sector in these niche businesses.
Mitie acquired Interserve’s FM business in December 2020 and now employs 75,000 members of staff. The business is a champion of the ‘Front Line Heroes’ who have kept Britain working during the COVID-19 pandemic.
