MITIE, the FTSE 250 strategic outsourcing company, has been awarded the Leadership Diversity Award as part of the prestigious National Business Awards 2013 in London.

MITIE was recognised for the exemplary steps it has taken to create a culture which promotes and enables greater diversity at the executive level – and for demonstrating the positive impact this has on commercial performance and operational excellence.

The outsourcer also fosters and promotes the importance of diversity not just within MITIE, but with its suppliers, clients and in the wider community.

MITIE has already achieved key milestones in the diversity arena, including:

  • Appointed the first Asian Female CEO in the FTSE 250 or 100
  • It is one of only three companies in the FTSE 250 where two of the top three roles (CEO, FD and Chairman) are held by women*
  • Established an externally-chaired Diversity & Inclusion Steering Group formed of senior operational leaders who are accountable for its agenda and outcomes
    • Built a network of Diversity Champions who are responsible for delivering business-specific diversity initiatives within every level of the organisation

Ruby McGregor-Smith CBE, chief executive of MITIE, said:

“We were absolutely delighted to win the Leadership Diversity Award at the National Business Awards. Being part of a company that celebrates diversity in the broadest sense is something that we are truly passionate about at MITIE.

“Having a talented and diverse workforce is critical to both our past and future success as a business. It is fantastic that our approach to diversity has been publicly recognised in this way and we intend to continue leading the way in leadership diversity excellence.”

Now in their twelfth year, the National Business Awards are the UK’s premier, cross-industry accolades for enterprise excellence. Each year, over 1,200 business leaders from start-ups, social enterprises and SMEs, to mid-market, large family and FTSE-listed firms come together to celebrate the best of British business.
