“Planning for succession is one of the biggest challenges a business owner will face, and despite the fact that giving the topic early consideration can mean better results for the employer, the employees and the business, many delay.”
Jerba Campervans founder Simon Poole recently decided to adopt the Employee Ownership business model for his exit from the business. After seeing just how successful it has been for not only the business, but also the employees and himself he’s made it his personal mission to spread the word and to encourage business owners to consider the option too.
Simon has become a bit of a local ambassador for Employee Ownership, you may have heard him on BBC Radio Scotland, all across the internet or even here on our blog where we, the employee’s, write about how successful we believe it has been!
Scottish Enterprise recently reached out to ask Simon if he would join EO specialist Alistair Gibb of Ownership Associates and Harvey Maps to present at their Edinburgh workshop coming in Feb 2020. Harvey Maps & Jerba Campervans will walk you through the reasons behind why they became employee-owned and Alistair Gibb will answer any and all questions related to EO and help you explore this fantastic option for business succession.
