In this free webinar hosted by the Royal Society of Architects Wales, in collaboration with Employee Ownership Wales, find out how and why many architectural practices have become employee-owned.

The RSAW, the RIBA and Employee Ownership Wales are pleased to invite you to a webinar on employee ownership, what it is and why you should consider it for the development and sustainability of your practice. Employee ownership using an employee ownership trust is gaining popularity as a tax-efficient solution that secures your company’s legacy while offering benefits for you and your team.

Arup led the way becoming employee owned using a trust model. Since 2014, when a revised form of employee ownership trust was introduced, over 700 companies across the United Kingdom have adopted this as a mechanism of spreading ownership and planning founders’ exits. In the architectural sector, this includes Make Architects, BPR, Assael, Purcell, Bennetts Associates, BB Partnership, Orms, Culliman Studio, Rooflight and Alford Hall Monaghan Morris.

At this event, you can learn about the employee trust approach, find out if involving your team in the ownership is the right choice for you and your business, and get tips on how to make sure the process goes smoothly.

We are pleased to announce that Chris Loyn, Founder of Penarth architects Loyn and Co, and James Brown, Managing Director of Cardiff-based The Urbanists, will be joining us to talk about their experience and the factors that influenced their decision as well as the process involved and how they’re getting on now.

Paul Cantrill, Business Adviser, will talk about the employee ownership trust, what it is and how it can be used for ownership succession. Employee Ownership Wales adviser Branwen Ellis will also talk through all ownership succession options before focussing on employee ownership through an employee ownership trust and the various ways this can be done.

Register now to learn how you can use an employee ownership trust to achieve employee ownership and realise improved engagement and incentivisation of your team.
