Vox Pops International

Insightful video. Thoughtfully created.

Corporate Overview

Employee-Owned Enterprise

Vox Pops became an employee-owned company in December 2021, which is controlled by an Employee Ownership Trust, of which staff are the main beneficiaries. It is a progressive business model where staff have a ‘significant and meaningful’ financial stake in the business and a say in how it’s run.

As co-owners, staff in employee-owned businesses tend to be more entrepreneurial and committed to the company and its success. As they typically have high employment standards, involve staff and give everyone a stake. We are proud to be employee owned and have a fantastic team.

Certified B-Corporation

Vox Pops has achieved B-Corp Certification which confirms that our business is meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency on factors from employee benefits and charitable giving to supply chain practices and input materials. It demonstrates we are a very good corporate citizen which cares about its’ staff, the environment and making a positive contribution to the community and society.

B-Corps out-perform their UK peers through greater employee retention, engagement and diversity, more robust governance, greater focus on civic and community engagement and higher levels of innovation.

Diversity

Vox Pops has always employed a diverse group of people from a variety of backgrounds, gender, race and religions. It is the clear path of ambition, knowledge, skill and attitude which are important factors for the success of the company and employing a diverse workforce reinforces this.
