24th June is Employee Ownership Day!

  • | Anne-Marie Hayes

This year is the 10th annual EO Day and what better way to celebrate than on our staff training away day. Each year, we dedicate one day to a staff CPD away day where every employee at Insalls has the opportunity to meet up with other colleagues from across our nine offices. This year, the team are getting hands-on with everything from collyweston slating, timber oak faming and joining, to lime plastering! We can’t wait to see the photos!


Employee ownership


Since our inception in 1958, the care we bring to the buildings on which we work has been echoed in the way we run our business: centred on people. Our forward-thinking ethos led us to become an employee-owned practice, where each member of the practice owns a meaningful stake in the business through an Employee Ownership Trust. Every one of our members enjoys a percentage share of the business profits every year, regardless of seniority, and is invited to participate in various practice-wide consultations on how we can be a better business and practice.

We began our transition to employee ownership in 1991, when a deed of trust was formed between Sir Donald Insall and the practice directors at the time. We gradually increased this number over the years until the practice became 100% employee-owned (95% by the EOT and 5% by Donald Insall) on our 60th anniversary year of 2018.

We believe that being employee owned makes us stronger, more resilient and delivers benefits for our employees. With this year’s theme in mind of #GrowEO, we look forward to watching the sector grow in the years to come!
