Commenting on the publication of the Nuttall report into employee ownership by the government today (Wednesday), TUC General Secretary Brendan Barber said:
'The most successful companies are those which have good relationships with their staff and where employees genuinely feel involved with the running of the business. In these situations where workers feel valued and that their views matter, employee ownership can reap benefits both for the workforce and for businesses.
'The TUC welcomes the opportunity to contribute to the debate on how workers might start owning shares in the places where they work for the benefit of everyone that the Deputy Prime Minister has started today.'
