Inspiring co-operative enterprise through education

We the Owners

Screenings of new employee ownership film

CETS and Co-operative Development Scotland have organised a series of screenings throughout Scotland of the new employee ownership film We the Owners. Of interest to the business community and enterprise-focused academics and students, 'We the Owners: Employees Expanding the American Dream' was made to educate and motivate the next generation of business leaders, technologists and educators on the 'art of the possible' in ownership structures, corporate culture, incentives, rewards and innovation models. The film captures the inspiring stories of employee owners and founders from three US companies by following their decisions on expansion, succession, recruitment and layoffs:
