What is employee Ownership

Warm Glass became Employee Owned in 2021, underpinning our ethos of putting people first and giving creative influence to the people at the forefront of our business. For a company to become 'employee owned', at least 51% of the business is acquired by an Employee Ownership Trust.

The trust distributes the profits to the employees, who automatically become co-owners by becoming a beneficiary of the trust, having a significant and meaningful stake in the business.

The employee ownership model is gathering movement with over 730 UK businesses. Other well-known employee owned businesses include John Lewis, Aardman Animations and Riverford Organics!

Why we became Employee Owned

"Having built up the company for over 20 years, we were always mindful of the need to plan for its future stability and development, and who better to ‘hand the reins over’ to than the progressive, ambitious team that have joined us along the journey so far.

This amazing group of co-owners have the skills and knowledge of both the company and the industry to take us forward into the next exciting phase of growth and development."

"For me, it means being more involved in the future of the business so it is great to have an impact on decisions and know my opinion can make difference. The profit share bonus we receive is also a big incentive to make positive changes."
