UK trailblazer Nuttall to offer insights into bringing employee ownership into the mainstream
Graeme Nuttall begins his review of employee ownership for the UK government quite simply. "Employee ownership is a great idea."
Nuttall can offer Australian and New Zealand businesses many insightful analyses and commentary on the challenges being faced by in the take-up and education of employee ownership.
"A good number see employee ownership as complex," considers Nuttall. "It need not be. The company can be much like any other company. What is different is how it is owned. It is really easy to create a new company with employee ownership". He says the concept "needs to be as familiar as franchising or a management buyout."
Equally interesting is this view is shared by the UK government. "My goal is to shift employee ownership into the mainstream of corporate Britain," said Norman Lamb, Minister for Employment Relations, Consumer and Postal Affairs on the release of the ground-breaking Nuttall Review of Employee Ownership. "That is why I asked Graeme Nuttall, one of the foremost experts on employee ownership, to undertake an independent review into employee ownership."
Nuttall will deliver the keynote speech at Employee Ownership Australia’s 2013 Conference on Friday, 25 May 2013.
