Medical device developer, Team Consulting, based in Ickleton, Cambridgeshire is delighted to be a part of the Employee Ownership Association (EOA), and on Friday 30th June 2017 will be celebrating Employee Ownership Day (EO Day) with other member companies across the UK. This follows news of becoming an employee trust owned business in December 2016.
Companies which are employee owned, or who have large and significant employee ownership stakes, now contribute £30 billion to GDP. Team firmly believes that being employee owned is a key factor in building a successful business.
On a lighter note, the day also happens to coincide with ‘National Cream Tea Day’, so Team will be combining the two!
Deb Oxley, CEO for the Employee Ownership Association, comments: “Companies such as Team Consulting are great examples of the economic and social benefits that can be achieved in an employee owned environment. The EOA is proud to lead the sector-wide celebrations of employee ownership on EO Day 2017, as part of our activity to raise awareness and move employee ownership further into the mainstream of business structures.”
Dr Ben Wicks, Team's Head of MedTech, who has been with the company since 2012, shares what he thinks about working for an employee owned trust is like:
“Personally I take most satisfaction from the freedom to always be open and honest with the companies we deal with. Our thought process and dialog can always be ‘How can we best help them?’ and doesn’t have to be ‘What is the most profitable option?’.”
