Today is Employee Ownership Day – so what’s it like working for a mutual?

Created by the Employee Ownership Association in 2013 and supported by business, an array of trade and industry groups and across the political spectrum, Employee Ownership Day is a unique opportunity to highlight and celebrate the significant benefits employee ownership delivers to the UK economy.

Now, as it happens, I am on the Board of a mutual organisation which is owned and controlled by the staff. Only this week, I chaired a Board meeting of the Tinder Foundation which approved a suggestion – from one of the newest and most junior staff members – that has changed the remuneration policy of the organisation.

You can read her observations on working for the Tinder Foundation, together with the thoughts of a longer-served staff member, here.

I am proud to be associated with an organisation with such great staff that does such wonderful work.
