Sponsor viewpoint: Capital4Colleagues

“The UK economy undoubtedly faces a number of challenges over the coming months and it’s times like these that result in questions being raised again about productivity, innovation, good governance and employee representation.

So it’s good to know that we already have a robust business ownership model in place that is proven to deal with these challenges well – the Employee Owned Business (EOB).

Such companies typically ensure their employees have a meaningful stake in their business and the managers pay close attention to how people are engaged in the running of the business.

Research tells us that these EOBs are more productive, innovative and great places to work.

They are also run with the long-term in mind; they are built to last. This is the third year that Capital for Colleagues has sponsored the Employee Ownership Association’s Annual Conference, which provides an opportunity for the 700 delegates to discuss, learn about and celebrate the success of numerous EOBs. The employee ownership sector and its many businesses are special and we will continue to invest in and support the growth of these great companies.

Sponsoring this conference is an excellent way for us to demonstrate our commitment to employee ownership, and we are delighted to do so.”
