It is therefore very fitting on the same day I also celebrate and welcome every employee of Safer Sphere as a partner within the business.
“Safer Sphere has converted 49% of its ownership to an Employee Benefit Trust, meaning all of our superb team now have a stake in the company. This provision has been put in place to align with our business growth plan, reward our team for their substantial efforts and to enable them to share in the future successes that we hope to see in the coming years and beyond.
