Administered by RM2, in partnership with the EOA and sponsored by the John Lewis Partnership, the EOT Survey was introduced in 2015 to measure the take-up of EOTs.  The survey helps to provide crucial evidence to government and policy makers on the take-up of EOTs, the type of businesses adopting them and whether the EOT model is working as the policy makers intended.

A snapshot of the EOT take-up was produced, based on information shared by businesses on their transition to an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT).  This showed that the EOT sector is growing at 40% per annum and now represents three quarters of all employee owned companies and half of all employees in the employee-owned sector.

The distribution of EOT companies across trade sectors is not dissimilar to the pattern found in the wider economy.  However there are proportionally more EOT companies in manufacturing and professional services sectors.

EOT's have been particularly popular in companies with between 50 and 250 employees, through penetration in that size bracket is still only 2.7 in 1,000 companies nationally, showing how much more potential growth exists for EOTs.

If you've already got an EOT in place or are currently making the transition, then please come back and take part in the survey, the results of which will be used to shape the future of the employee ownership sector.
