Team Consulting celebrates UK Employee Ownership Day – 30th June 2017
Cambridge, UK – Here at Team we’re delighted to be part of the Employee Ownership Association (EOA), and on Friday 30th June 2017 we will celebrate Employee Ownership Day (EO Day) with other member companies across the UK. This follows news of becoming an employee trust owned business in December 2016.
“Companies such as Team Consulting are great examples of the economic and social benefits that can be achieved in an employee owned environment.”
Deb Oxley, CEO, Employee Ownership Association
Companies which are employee owned, or who have large and significant employee ownership stakes, now contribute £30 billion to GDP. Team firmly believes that being employee owned is a key factor in building a successful business.
On a lighter note, the day also happens to coincide with ‘National Cream Tea Day’, so we thought it would be a great opportunity to combine the two!
Deb Oxley, CEO for the Employee Ownership Association, comments: “Companies such as Team Consulting are great examples of the economic and social benefits that can be achieved in an employee owned environment. The EOA is proud to lead the sector-wide celebrations of employee ownership on EO Day 2017, as part of our activity to raise awareness and move employee ownership further into the mainstream of business structures.”
We asked Ben Wicks, our Head of MedTech, who has been with the company since 2012, to tell us what he thinks about working for an employee owned trust:
“Personally I take most satisfaction from the freedom to always be open and honest with the companies we deal with. Our thought process and dialog can always be ‘How can we best help them?’ and doesn’t have to be ‘What is the most profitable option?’.”
