How to become an employee owned mutual – An action checklist for the public sector

Sunday 6 March 2011

This guide is for staff and managers in public sector organisations who are considering taking over ownership of the services they provide. The benefits of employee ownership have led to cross-party political commitment to increasing the role of employee-led mutuals and co-operatives in providing public services. Public sector workers are being given a ‘right to provide’, meaning they will have the option to set up new organisations outside of the public sector and take on full responsibility for the services they deliver. Moving to an employee owned company raises many practical questions which must be answered before a transition. This guide is about helping you through that process.
