Some of our providers will be hosting LIVE webinars to give you more information about some of the benefits – please look out for further information on Monday when the window opens! From the Summer we will be offering the majority of these benefits (excluding Critical Illness and Holiday Buy) to all hourly paid Mitie colleagues, on a net deduction basis. This is another important step forward on our road to making Mitie a great place to work and supporting you in life outside of work as One Mitie. Don’t forget to also check our benefits guide to see all the benefits that are available to you as a Mitie colleague. Important Information Please note, some benefits are operated on a salary sacrifice basis which means Mitie purchases your chosen benefits on your behalf and in turn reduces your pay by the amount your benefits cost (providing you don’t go below National Minimum Wage). As a result, you can make attractive income tax and/or national insurance savings and Mitie saves some national insurance too. See individual benefit pages for details of tax and national insurance savings. This arrangement represents a change to your terms and conditions of employment due to your gross salary being reduced by the cost of the benefit.
