EO Day 2018

Tell your EO Story and celebrate EO Day 2018

EO Day is the national celebration of employee ownership and a major opportunity for to raise awareness of the economic benefits and positive impact the sector has on the UK economy.

EO Day 2018 will take place on Friday 29 June and we are encouraging employee owned businesses and employee owners to ‘Tell your EO Story’ as one of the most powerful things you can do to raise awareness of employee ownership whether via:

  • your communication channels,
  • to your sector such as supply chain, industry event or trade publication
  • in your region to other businesses, customers, local MP, local business event or to your local newspaper

Our campaign pack is full of ideas and supporting documents such as a press release template and MP letter invite template to support whatever you decide to do.

However, you do not have to be employee owned to celebrate EO Day, there are plenty of ways for those exploring employee ownership, those who advise employee owned businesses or those who support the case for more employee ownership in the UK. These include:

  • Writing a blog
  • Sharing the social media graphic facts we will supply
  • Inviting someone from the EOA to speak at an event/ speaking about EO at an event


Get ideas

We have lots of ideas of how you can celebrate – see how our members and stakeholders celebrated via our social media last year, reaching more than 1.3m through social media channels, from our storify

From employee parties, hosting internal or external events and of course, sharing photos of your celebrations on social media, we’d love you to get involved and make some noise about employee ownership.

We’ll release more information on the run-up to EO Day, but in the meantime you can:
