Mitie bolsters risk management credentials

Mitie has bolstered its risk management and business continuity credentials through the attainment of ISO 22301, the international standard for Business Continuity Management Systems.

The certification demonstrates that the firm's risk management function has the appropriate level of expertise in business resilience that meets international standards and recognises its ability to help maintain the critical operations of its customers and partners in the event of a major disruption to business operations.

During the process, Mitie underwent rigorous assessments using a blended approach (remote and site based) where 20 different business areas, customer sites and operational locations, including its Technical Service Operations Centre, Intelligence Hub and group operations, were audited.

Over 1,000 pieces of information were assessed across the company, of which several areas of best practice were highlighted, leading to the company attaining the ISO 22301 certification.

Jason Towse, managing director, business services, Mitie, said: “As one of the UK’s leading providers of risk and security services, this industry certification recognises our commitment to risk management expertise. This certification will ensure that we’re well placed to support our customers and partners in achieving greater levels of resilience and disaster preparedness.”

Founded in 1987, Mitie employs 68,000 people in the UK. In 2022, the company was the recipient of a CIR Risk Management Award.
