With an ownership stake in the business and an influence on governance, Gripple’s employees are focused on the achievement of strategic goals, engaged in improvement and innovation, and receptive to positive change in the workplace. Gripple, a world leading manufacturer of wire joining and tensioning systems, has been an employee-owned business for over 25 years.
According to MD Ed Stubbs:
“Setting and achieving targets is strongly ingrained in our employee owners. It provides a measure that all employees ask about and are very aware of, and it drives real action on a day to day basis, focusing on translating opportunities, customer problems, and employee suggestions into tangible, physical products.”
“We have continued to innovate and we’ve continued to develop patented products, and one of the benefits of this is that it has given us the confidence to invest in worldwide marketing. The business’ growth has come from real geographic expansion over the course of 30 years supported by new products developed by our employee owners.”
Join us in this unique virtual journey where you’ll meet and discuss the company’s journey towards a culture of engagement and innovation with Ed and with several members of his workforce, and discover what makes Gripple different . . .
Ed Stubbs will describe Gripple’s journey towards employee ownership and how it has transformed the company’s culture and working practices. Self-management at individual and team level accompanied by two-way accountability have become embedded in Gripple’s way of working, whilst high involvement innovation and improvement are central to the company’s competitive success.
