Employee owned

dxw is owned by the people who work here

What employee ownership means to us

Employees at dxw own the majority of the company. In practice, 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 we have the independence to maintain our values and evolve our culture, as we grow. We’ve done things a bit differently and incorporated our mission into our trust deeds. So dxw must be run in the interests of the people who use the services we build, as well as our employees.

We want to be a different type of supplier. A 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.  When he sold the company to us, our founder set out his personal vision for dxw’s future in a letter of wishes.

What we do

We can work with you in lots of ways. From consultancy support for digital transformation programmes, growing capability, researching, designing and building services, to hosting and running live services.

Last year, we worked on 90 projects to deliver positive, sustainable change for public service organisations and their users. As well as hosting and supporting around 110 websites.
