Employee Ownership – A model for growth and productivity

Posted: 5th November 2021

Lindsays is delighted to invite you to their webinar ‘Employee Ownership – A model for growth and productivity’ on Wednesday 24th November at 10am.


Over 100 Scottish companies are now structured as employee-owned (EO) organisations enjoying benefits such as higher profitability and productivity, better workforce retention and higher levels of staff engagement and wellbeing than non-EO businesses, according to numerous research studies.


Lindsays’ Managing Partner, Alasdair Cummings, welcomes Douglas Roberts, a Partner at Lindsays, and Carole Leslie, Employee Ownership adviser at Ownership Associates UK, who will give an overview of employee ownership looking at how it works and the benefits of structuring your business as an EO model. They will give an overview of employee ownership looking at:

  • how employee ownership works
  • the benefits of employee-owned models
  • the various options for structuring your business as an employee-owned model
  • sector-specific case studies demonstrating successes.


If you are a business owner who employs even a few staff and are turning over anything from c£1m+, employee ownership could be the key to your business achieving greater success.
