What employee ownership means to us
Employees at dxw own the majority of the company. This means that 90% of the shares are held in a trust on behalf of all current and future dxw staff.
Being employee owned means a company must be managed in the best interests of all staff. But we’ve done things a bit differently and incorporated our mission and values into the trust deeds too. So dxw must also be run in the interests of the people who use the services we build.
We want to be a different type of supplier. An independent commercial business that puts the value it creates in the hands of its staff, and one that has a binding commitment to creating public services that improve lives. Our founder set out his personal vision for dxw’s future in a letter of wishes.
