Lisa McNair from Unicorn Grocery ran a practical workshop on HR issues and Bob Cannel from Suma talked about implementing The Code of Governance for worker co-operatives.
There was some really useful knowledge sharing and I intend to collect together resources from participants and make them available to other Co-operatives
Members of The Employee Co-operative Council (Our representative body for worker co-operatives) also attended the event and held their quarterly meeting. There was also ample time for members to catch up with each other, and get to know new members like The Very People a PR and Marketing Business and City Design Co-operative an architect and urban design business.
CMS hope to make this event an yearly opportunity for worker co-operatives to get together and we hope to be back next year.
