It offers a tax-efficient exit route that protects the legacy of their company while providing a competitive price through a sale to an Employee Ownership Trust. But its more than a good option for the owner.  The business model allows the future of the firm to be secured, keeping it rooted in its local community and securing the jobs of the local workforce.

In this episode of the Reset and Rebuild Podcast  explores employee ownership in more detail, examining what it is, how it benefits the owners and the company, its employees and the local community.
