Employee ownership has been around for many years with names like John Lewis and Scott Barder. The sector has seen real growth in recent years driven by a resurgence of values-led entrepreneurs with the 2014 finance act removing the disincentive for owners to sell their businesses into the ‘trust’ of their employees.
