Business ownership has seen a gradual revolution over recent decades, with a number of leading business and founders recognising the advantages that employee-ownership can bring for business growth, employee engagement, resilience and success. Employee-ownership is now the fastest growing form of business ownership in the UK, delivering 4 per cent of UK GDP annually. We are proud to be part of this movement and belong to a community of distinct and leading organisations.
Giving greater power to a larger number of people, or even the whole company, might sound like madness to some leaders, but for Saxton Bampfylde it made complete sense. We have been in business for 33 years and are proud of our unique sense of community, and distinct reputation in the market. Becoming employee-owned 5 years ago felt like a natural step, and we look forward to celebrating our fifth year as an employee benefit trust next month.
Friday 28th June 2019 marks the Employee Ownership Association’s (EOA) national day of celebration, #EODay. To mark the occasion we wanted to share some of our Partner’s thought on what being employee-owned means to them.
