Mitie signs up to Armed Forces Covenant


07 December 2016

Mitie, the facilities management company, has formally marked its commitment to the British Armed Forces by signing the Armed Forces Covenant.

The signing marks the company’s recognition of the value that serving and Reservist personnel, veterans and military families contribute to its business and the UK. It is also a pledge by Mitie to do more to support the employment of serving personnel, veterans and Reservists and help make the transition out of military life easier.

Mitie has also committed to giving Reservists and military spouses in its employment the flexibility they need to allow for deployment or training schedules, and also to support service leavers moving into civilian roles.

Mitie’s chief executive, Ruby McGregor-Smith CBE, commented:  “We recognise the tremendous contribution and sacrifice that our Armed Forces and their families make to our country and we are proud to sign the Covenant as a mark of our support and commitment.” 

Ruby McGregor-Smith CBE signed the Covenant with Assistant Chief of Defence Staff (Reserves and Cadets), Major General Ranald Munro CBE TD VR, at Mitie’s Reading office on Monday 05 December.  They were joined by Mitie reservists.

What is the Armed Forces Covenant?

The Armed Forces Covenant was launched by the Prime Minister to encourage businesses and charities to do more to show their support for Armed Forces personnel.

It is a voluntary pledge of support for the armed forces community and includes two key principles – that no member of the armed forces community should face disadvantage in the provision of public and commercial services compared to any other citizen, and that in some circumstances special treatment may be appropriate, especially for the injured or bereaved.
