Employee Ownership Trust (EOT)

In March 2020 BNE became an employee owned business. This means that every employee is now a beneficiary of an Employee Ownership Trust which owns BNE on behalf of all employees now and in the future.

In terms of the day-to-day running of the business, the management team continue to run the company as before and our clients continue to receive the same levels of world-class service from us.

Our change to employee ownership demonstrates our commitment to creating a vibrant future for the company and building a durable, superior business asset that all of our employees can be proud of.

As a company, BNE has always been strong on dedication and we have consistently exhibited a desire to grow and form new business relationships. Under Employee Ownership, everyone on the BNE team has a formal, vested interest in those principles and a tangible reason to uphold them and to develop them going forward.

We strive to encourage employees to identify ways of improving the business – better ways of communicating better, finding cost-savings, improving processes, etc – and we find effective ways of keeping all employees informed about how well the business is doing.
