MITIE’s values focus on people, passion, fresh thinking and exciting futures. Our team spirit, enthusiasm and commitment are at the heart of our success and drive us to continuously improve and deliver an excellent service for our clients.
This is exactly why we wanted to be part of the London Revolution. We’re excited by new challenges and the London Revolution gives us the opportunity to work in partnership with Threshold to deliver an event which will challenge our employees. The MITIE London Revolution will form part of a wider employee health and wellbeing campaign which is being rolled out across MITIE in 2013. With a focus on employee engagement, the campaign will seek to provide resources and an incentive to employees to think more about their individual physical and mental health. A FTSE 250 employer of over 74,000 people in the UK and Europe, MITIE places people firmly at the heart of the organisation and recognises the value of health promotion to help mitigate both the human and business cost of ill-health.
What’s more, the London Revolution gives us a chance to connect with social enterprises to create positive change through sport. Sustainability has always been at the core of what we do and by participating in the MITIE London Revolution we can reinforce our commitment to the communities in which we work.
“We’re delighted to sponsor the MITIE London Revolution, a challenge that reflects MITIE’s focus on developing people to deliver exceptional results. We look forward to working with Threshold to make the event a real success.” MITIE Chief Executive Ruby McGregor-Smith CBE
MITIE has nominated City Gateway as the official lead charity for the MITIE London Revolution, as part of the Evening Standard’s Ladder for London campaign. One in four young Londoners is out of work; City Gateway helps these unemployed young people kick-start their lives, offering training, mentoring and opportunities for apprenticeships with leading companies.
City Gateway will use the money raised through the MITIE London Revolution to deliver its Ladder for London apprenticeship training programme.
