Mitie celebrates employees’ achievements at 2024 recognition awards

Mitie 2024 Recognition Awards Facilities management and transformation firm Mitie has celebrated its employees’ achievements over the past year through its 2024 recognition awards.

More than 75 employees were recognised at the event, which was held at the Shard. Through its Mitie Stars employee recognition programme, which is designed to recognise individuals who deliver its values, staff can be nominated year-round by colleagues or customers and will be considered for that month’s prize. The monthly winners are shortlisted and the top three entrants are named Mitie Stars of the Year. The first place winner was awarded £10,000, second place £5,000 and joint third place £2,500 each.

Mitie also celebrated 17 of its longest-serving employees who reached over 40 or 50 years’ service, with each collecting £400 and £500 vouchers respectively as a thank you for their loyalty and dedication. It also honoured two employees, one aged 92 and one aged 89, who have worked as cleaning operatives on Mitie’s contract with Essex County Council for more than 20 years.

In addition, the organisation presented certificates to the leads and deputies of Mitie’s equality, diversity and inclusion networks for their support and dedication to promoting inclusivity. These include race and ethnicity network Chord, gender equality network Mitie Women Can, LGBTQ+ network Proud to Be, armed forces network Mitie Military, disability and neurodiversity network Enable and its network for parents and carers.

Jasmine Hudson, chief people officer at Mitie, said: “Our annual Mitie Stars event is always an amazing opportunity for us to acknowledge the excellence of our staff, but this year we wanted to spread this even further, recognising the great work of even more of our employees. They embody what it means to be Mitie, from incredible levels of bravery and professionalism, unwavering commitment to their jobs, and championing equality. They should all be very proud of their achievements, and I’m thrilled that we could all come together to celebrate them.”
