Simon Biltcliffe, the CEO of Webmart who have offices in Barnsley, Bicester and East Kilbride, is passionate about engaging and empowering his people! CEO stands for ‘Chief Empowerment Officer’ by the way, and he leads his incredibly successful print brokerage business on Capitalist Marxist principles. That means there’s a strong commercial profit focus, but those profits are shared by his team of 43 people.
Among the many innovative and forward thinking ideas he has, is that every employee gets £250 and one day of their time to spend on a charity of their choice. It’s a simple idea that gives people the chance to make a difference in an area that means something to them! That’s ’empowerment’!
