Commsworld has revealed it is taking further steps to increase employee ownership of the company.
The Edinburgh-headquartered firm will establish an Enterprise Management Incentive (EMI) scheme, which gives employees the opportunity to acquire share options from a pool set aside by the company.
Launched this month, Commsworld said the firm hopes that staff will “grasp the opportunity” to have their own share in the company they work for.
Commenting on the announcement, Commsworld chief executive, Steve Langmead, said: “Since the company was launched, Commsworld has always prided itself in the quality of its service for clients. This is thanks to the standard of work provided by our highly-skilled and dedicated workforce.
“When we were looking at our options for the future, we wanted our people to be able to benefit from our success. The EMI scheme was the ideal way forward for us, and we hope that all our staff will take advantage of it as the company goes from strength to strength.”
The launch of the scheme follows Commsworld’s biggest recruitment drive to date. 12 new appointments have been made at the firm on the back of continued growth and success over the past year.
Commsworld secured contracts valued at more than £16.7 million across multiple sectors between October and December last year, marking one of the firm’s best quarters in its 27-year history.

This recruitment drive included the appointment of a new business development director. Dan Jackson has taken up the role with the aim of driving new business sales into the public sector market across England.
Steve Langmead added: “Our new recruits bring with them a wealth of experience and we are delighted to welcome them to Commsworld, especially during such an exciting phase of our growth and development.
“These appointments, across all areas of the business, underline our commitment to investing in our future as we expand to meet growing demand.”
