Webinar: Empowering businesses from within – the road to Employee Ownership

According to the Employee Ownership Association, employee-owned businesses are more productive, more innovative, and more resilient to economic turbulence.

With over 830 businesses in the UK currently employee-owned, and that number predicted to surpass 1,000 this year, the latest webinar from TheBusinessDesk.com in partnership with Shawbrook Bank looks at the road to this increasingly popular route for businesses!

Our expert panel will discuss the key considerations for businesses thinking to make the move, as well as the financial and legal implications.

Attendees will also hear from Matthew Smith the CEO of B2B agency BDB which transitioned to 100% employee ownership in 2021.

The webinar will take place on Friday 29 April 2022 at 10am.
