Work, Wages and Wellbeing

Our team member Karen Pickering was at the Scottish Parliament this week sharing our experience of business succession planning and Employee Ownership. Talking at the Economy, Energy and Tourism Committee, the discussion included representatives from Cooperative Development Scotland, John Lewis, Scott & Fyfe, The Wee Agency and Portpatrick Harbour with the meeting title of Work, Wages and Wellbeing. The purpose was to give evidence to MSP’s on the benefits of co-operatives and employee ownership, with the parliament looking at how policy can be used to encourage more Scottish businesses to follow these models. The meeting was recorded and can be watched in full here .
