Employees at Educ8, a Wales-based training company, became Employee-Owned in 2022 in a transaction supported by GS Verde.
Edcu8's workplace culture is one of collaboration and cooperation and perfectly fits Employee Ownership. The employees now have a tangible stake in the business and can work towards shared success in the business.
GS Verde supported throughout the entire process, with multidiscipline dealmakers working as one team to advise on company structure, carry out due diligence, raise funding, and draft new contracts and agreements.
In the year since becoming employee-owned, Educ8 has completed two acquisitions, also supported by GS Verde, and their headcount has grown by 50 new staff.
Within the right business and the correct environment, Employee Ownership has huge potential to unlock success.
