Employee owned businesses are totally or largely owned by their employees. The economic contribution of employee ownership to the UK economy is significant and is growing. Employee ownership delivers 4% of the UK’s GDP each year.
Research shows that employee owned businesses achieve higher productivity and greater levels of innovation and are more resilient to economic turbulence. They also have more engaged, more fulfilled and less stressed workforces.
