Our company ownership is now established. But for others that is not the case. As with Elon Musk acquiring Twitter, will their staff’s jobs be safe? Will they still have a great variety of work? Will they still have opportunities for development? It also has a big impact on the processes and systems they use as companies try to merge into one. This can always bring uncertainty and resistance together with a significant impact on the amount of time they will need to master new ways of working.
I heard on the radio that “the board has to do what is best for the shareholders so they will have to accept the offer of being bought, even if they don’t like it” reporting on the Twitter purchase. As part of the employee ownership trust, I am thankful that we don’t have any of these worries. Because we are employee-owned, the likelihood that we will be sold or merged with another company is very low. We will never be in the same position as Twitter, where the financial benefit to external shareholders is prioritised over all other considerations.
