5 reasons employee ownership may be the right choice for your company

5 reason for choosing employee ownership

  1. Employees who are owners are more engaged and committed

  2. Builds a clear shared purpose and collaborative way of working
  3. Ownership succession which preserves your business and its culture
  4. A stronger performing business
  5. Tax reliefs for retiring owners and employees alike

What is the evidence?

The Ownership Dividend , a report published in June 2018, found that employee ownership delivered benefits for business, individuals and the wider economy. For example, sales by employee-owned companies were found to have grown by 3% more than non-employee-owned companies in 2017.

According to the Employee Ownership Association, in the same year employee-owned companies experienced a 6.4% growth in productivity compared with 3.4% for other companies.
