Thousands of employee owners across the UK are celebrating their employee ownership status today for Employee Ownership Day (EO Day), an annual, national date in the calendar, which highlights the collective strength and achievements of the UK’s employee ownership sector.
We are proud to be one of them.
We are one of over 470 employee owned (EO) businesses in the UK that contribute over £30bn to UK GDP every year. We stand alongside other EO businesses, including John Lewis and Partners, Lush Cosmetics, Aardman Animations, Riverford Organics and Richer Sounds.
Despite the challenging business climate, the sector has continued to grow:
28% Growth in 2019 – 50% of the growth in the sector has been since 2017
100 new EO businesses since the last EO Day
Productivity up by 6.9% in the Top 50 EO Businesses compared to a much lower performance in the UK as a whole
