There’s still time to apply for the EO Awards (sponsored by Baxendale)

The Employee Ownership Awards are the most prestigious accolades for those involved in EO in the UK. Don’t miss the deadline to apply.

The EO Awards, run by the Employee Ownership Association, recognise the considerable contribution EO businesses make to the economy. Baxendale Director, Campbell McDonald, says, “Employee ownership in the UK is in impeccable health. 17 years after Baxendale launched our mission to create more EO businesses, each month that goes by sees the sector’s strength in depth grow – and we expect and hope to see that reflected in the 11th annual EO Awards in November.”

Why enter?
The awards recognise the productivity, innovation and excellence driven by teams and individuals in EOBs, which demonstrate how employees having a stake in the business teamed with a robust culture of transparency and employee engagement result in outstanding performance in growth and resilience.

By applying you are able to tell your story, get recognition for your great work and shine a light on the sector. It’s FREE to enter, and the winners will be announced during the gala dinner on the first evening of the EOA Conference on 27th November 2017. With good food and representatives from all kinds of EOBs coming together to celebrate employee ownership, it promises to be the most important evening of the year for the EO sector.
