To mark Employee Ownership Day 2022, we’ve been reflecting on how our business has thrived since becoming 100% employee owned almost two years ago.
Since transferring ownership of Environet to an EOT (Employee Ownership Trust), our business has nearly doubled. Never before have we been so efficient and profitable, but most importantly, we have a fully motivated and engaged workforce and our highest ever TrustPilot rating of 4.9 stars.
Behind this transformation is a reform of our leadership and operating structure, giving significantly more responsibility to our team and supporting them as they flourish in their new roles.
Everyone is now working towards a common goal and purpose with a strong sense of accountability, which is having a positive effect on every element of our business. We now measure success in an entirely different way. Are our staff happy and engaged? Are our customers enjoying a positive experience and leaving us excellent reviews? By getting these parts right, increased prosperity has naturally followed.
As our founder and MD Nic Seal put it, “Never before have we had such a motivated team. Employee ownership must be a major factor in us all working towards our common goal and in the company’s continuing success.”
