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. 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.

Board of Trustees

The directors at dxw are accountable to our Trustees who make sure the company is meeting its targets, delivering our mission and being true to our values.

The Board of Trustees is chaired by our founder Harry, and includes 2 employee trustees voted for by staff. We’ll also soon be joined by 2 external trustees who will bring valuable wider expertise and challenge.

If you share our values and commitment to help build better public services together, we’d love to work with you.

If you have a project you think dxw could help with, or you work in a like-minded business and might want to partner with us, please get in touch by emailing us at contact@dxw.com.
