EO Day is the national celebration of employee ownership and a major opportunity to raise awareness of the economic benefits and positive impact the sector has on the UK economy.
EO Day 2019 will take place on Friday 28 June and we are encouraging employee owned businesses, employee owners and those who support the sector to communicate what about employee ownership makes them smile.
We want you to celebrate with a smile, help spread a smile or support our 40th anniversary appeal to Give a Healthy Smile.
We are delighted employee owned business Gripple is celebrating it’s 30th year by sponsoring EO Day 2019.
To celebrate and create some noise for EODay 2019 we’re asking employee owners: What about being EO makes you smile?
We have lots of ideas of how you can celebrate – see how our members and stakeholders celebrated via social media last year, reaching more than 1.3m through their channels, from our 2018 roundup.
Spread a smile by helping us to expand our reach x40 in our 40th year:
We feel the EO sector offers impacts through better business for individuals and communities including addressing some of the inequalities in health and wealth. So this year we want to go one step further to Give a Healthy Smile to those in deprived communities.
We want employee owned businesses to come together to leave a legacy. In the EOA’s 40th year we are asking you to help us to Give a Healthy Smile to 4,000 children in the UK by helping to raise £40,000.
Working in partnership with Community Dental Services the programme aims to tackle a preventable problem – NHS figures reveal that almost 42,911 children were admitted to hospital for a general anaesthetic to remove teeth last year. That equates to a staggering 170 children every day. It’s the single largest reason why children aged between five and nine are admitted to hospital, which impacts not just on the individual child’s health but also their wellbeing and that of their family. Together we can make a difference – Visit our webpage to find out more
