  • – Do you have a business idea, or need for a decent job doing what you love. But you want to share the work, responsibilities, and rewards with others?

    – Do you have a social or community project that you want to embed flat management and people-focused work practices?

    – Are interested in worker ownership and want the knowledge and tools to advocate for the model and help others get started on their own journey.

Description:

We live in a world of increasing inequality, exploitation, and a fixation on growth at all costs. We need new forms of business and there are a growing number of co-operatives that are owned and controlled primarily for the benefit of their workers.

This workshop will be a practical journey through the stages of setting up a worker co-op, exploring the different options and decisions you’ll make along the way.

– What is a worker co-op and why they are relevant to our economy.

– The practicalities of setting up a worker co-op, what you need, when you need it, and where to go for further support.

– The core skills, behaviours, and practical tools to make your journey as smooth as possible.
