Employee Ownership Day
With today being employee ownership day I’d like to offer my congratulations to my old employers, Forster, who last year had a management buy-out which saw the company become owned by their staff. It is now 18 years since Jilly Forster founded this ground-breaking social change communications company and I was so excited to see that staff who have helped to build and drive the company now have ownership too. I’m sure employee ownership will foster ever greater energy and commitment and help continue to take the company to bigger and better social and environmental achievements. I hope too that their positive example, alongside that of long-standing employee owned companies like John Lewis, will help to inspire other companies to devolve ownership.
