Having an interest in self-managed enterprises led to PTHR discovering and being in contact with the Employee Ownership Association (EOA). Not an official partner to PTHR, rather a key source of insight, research, and practices. It is PTHR’s stated intent to become employee-owned in the near future.

Founded in 1979, the EOA represents organisations which are employee-owned or transitioning to employee ownership across the UK and is a not for profit and politically independent organisation that works in close partnership with its members to champion, promote and provide insight into the business case for employee ownership. 

Since the publication of the Ownership Dividend in 2018, which revealed the significant dividend to be achieved by more employee ownership in the economy, the Employee Ownership Association (EOA) has campaigned for greater political interest, endorsement, and support from all political parties.
