After becoming an Employee Owned Trust, ensuring that every employee after 12 months owns a share in the business. This significant transition marked a new chapter in our company’s history, reinforcing our commitment to valuing and empowering our dedicated team. Central to this ethos is our Employee Council, We Matter, who ensure that every voice with our business is heard, fostering a culture of inclusivity, collaboration, and shared purpose.

We Matter officially launched in September 2021, working on projects organised through their monthly meetings such as event planning, internal communications, and employee well-being..

Our Employee CouncilĀ  is composed of representatives from various departments, ensuring a diverse and comprehensive representation of our workforce. These representatives can apply and then be chosen by their peers, underscoring the democratic foundation of the council. The council meets regularly to discuss a range of topics, from operational improvements to employee well-being initiatives. By fostering a culture of transparency and inclusivity, We Matter serves as a crucial bridge between the employees and the management team.
