Joseph Lampel, Ajay Bhalla, Pushkar Jha
The employee-owned sector – where companies are wholly or substantially owned by their staff – is estimated to be worth £25 billion annually, equivalent to 2% of UK GDP.

Employee-owned organisations also operate in the public sector, delivering services such as health and community care.
