Celebrate Employee-Ownership Day with us at Tops!

At Tops Day Nurseries, we’re thrilled to celebrate Employee Ownership Day on June 21st! This year is particularly special as we transitioned to an Employee-Owned Trust (EOT) in April 2024, marking a significant milestone in our journey and highlighting our commitment to creating a sense of belonging, accountability, and shared success among our team.

What is an EOT Company?

An Employee-Owned Trust (EOT) means our business is fully or partly owned by its employees. Moreover, this structure empowers our colleagues, giving them a greater say in the company’s future and the opportunity to benefit financially from its success. Furthermore, employee ownership fosters a workplace where everyone feels valued and invested in the company’s achievements.

The Impact of Becoming an EOT:

  • Enhanced Sense of Belonging: Employees have a direct stake in the company’s success, which fosters a stronger sense of community and commitment.
  • Increased Accountability: With a shared responsibility for the company’s performance, employees are more motivated to contribute to its success.
  • Financial Benefits: Employees benefit financially from the company’s success, aligning personal and organizational goals.

What Employee-Ownership Day Means for Us:

EO Day is not just a celebration but a recognition of the collective effort that drives our success. It underscores the values of teamwork, transparency, and mutual respect that are at the core of employee ownership. Overall, we are committed to these values and look forward to a future where every employee feels empowered and valued.
