EO Day 2023
This year’s EO day, run by the Employee Ownership Association (EOA), is centered around #TheEOeffect, which aims to showcase the impact employee ownership has on employees, business, the wider economy, communities, and the environment.
Itec became the first 100% employee ownership trust in 2019, as part of a succession plan to preserve its status as a leading independent provider and to place their people at the heart of the business.
Founded over 40 years ago, Itec operates across 18 sites in Wales and England, employing over 180 staff, providing quality services within the skills, education and employability sectors, holding Welsh Government contracts to deliver Apprenticeships and Jobs Growth Wales Plus, a Department for Work and Pensions contract (as a provider of Serco) to deliver Restart, an Education and Skills Funding Agency contract to deliver Apprenticeships in England, along with offering commercial training to individuals and employers throughout the UK
Esther Barnes, HR Director for Itec Training Solutions, said:
“Being employee owned provides us with long term stability and through empowering our employees we are continually evolving our business. I am extremely proud of our loyal and highly motivated team who make a difference and have a say as we seek ways to grow and improve our services for all our customers.
“On EO Day, we will be joining together as a business to reflect on our achievements over the last 12 months and the positive effect being an employee-owned business has had, with a live Q&A session with the Board of Directors and of course, sweet treats will be provided for all to enjoy on the day!”
