EO Day 2019

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 took place on Friday 28 June and we are encouraged employee owned businesses, employee owners and those who support the sector to communicate what about employee ownership makes them smile.

We asked you to celebrate with a smile, help spread a smile or support our 40th anniversary appeal to Give a Healthy Smile.

The EOA wants to thank its members and stakeholders for helping them reach millions of people through social media and articles for EO Day 2019.

Thousands of employee owners and supporters of employee ownership celebrated the annual EO Day campaign. On Twitter alone there were 3.3 million impressions of #EODay and #EODay2019 reaching more than 1.25 million accounts with hundreds of pictures, links and videos about how employee ownership supports wellbeing and happiness at work.

The smile spread even further with 6 MPs visiting EO businesses and sharing their experiences plus more than 30 online and media articles which were also shared across social media channels.

The celebrations for EO Day also got the ball rolling on donations for the EOA’s 40th Anniversary Appeal Give a Healthy Smile in partnership with Community Dental Services. The campaign is aiming to raise £40,000 to address tooth decay in children in the UK, which is the leading cause of hospital admissions for children aged between 5-9.

We want to say a huge thank you to our EO Day sponsor Gripple who are celebrating their 30th birthday, for helping us to raise awareness of employee ownership and its impacts and benefits on EO Day 2019.
