Letter from our Founder

After spending 15 years helping to build a technology recruitment firm and taking it to market, I took a step back and saw an industry that, by and large, seemed to just treat people as commodities. I believed that we could do better.

I always took the approach that it’s best to treat everyone with care and respect; I found it made my job more enjoyable and it always paid dividends. It’s one thing for me to think it’s the right thing to do – but was it too ridiculous to try to build a company around this very simple idea?

Fast forward to today and our shared vision: that treating people well is not just the right thing to do, it’s a better way to do business.

Simon La Fosse Executive Chairman and Founder, La Fosse

Employee Panel

Our Employee Panel is made up of Employee Ambassadors across all divisions of our business. Our Ambassadors play a critical and strategic role, ensuring that we continue to operate in the best interests of our employees in shaping our culture and driving value. As an employee-owned business, it's vital that we foster a collaborative environment, leading to enhanced innovation, employee satisfaction, and overall business success.

Ryan Grant

I believe that the way we evolve, grow, and drive this business to the next level is by everyone playing their part. The Panel gives us a unique opportunity to create a communication channel between the business and those making strategic decisions. I’m excited to be part of something driving positive change within the organisation.

Lai Shan Yip

I care deeply about the people I work with and the growth of La Fosse. I believe that every single person plays a vital part in the success of La Fosse, and I want everyone’s voice, ideas, and achievements to be heard and recognised. I’m excited to see what we can accomplish as a team in achieving our strategic goals.

Simon Clemson

I wanted to be a part of the Employee Panel for the simple reason that I care: about the people that work for La Fosse, the fortunes of the company, the students and Associates whose lives we are changing, and the customers we work with. I’m most excited about working with a team of diverse experiences and ideas.

Jon Price

I was passionate about joining the Panel as I believe that La Fosse is a special place to work. If we can inspire everyone to think and act like business owners, we’ll supercharge our growth and retain the culture that makes this such a unique company.

Lauren Stutz

I’ve recently relocated from our London office to the regional office in Birmingham and I’m keen to support the implementation of a consistent approach to growing the business across all of our offices. I want to do this whilst supporting the positive working culture of La Fosse and using this role to drive growth in the right direction.

I wanted to be part of the panel to strengthen and build new relationships with La Fosse employees. Using my people skills to confidently act as a liaison between the team and the council, I hope to grow whilst learning from other ambassadors within the panel, expanding my knowledge of the business.

Katherine Miller

Due to the nature of my role, I’m in an advantageous position whereby I work with and collaborate with teams across the whole business. I hope to ensure that trustees are given a voice and that their ideas are communicated through the appropriate channels to help to drive change and allow us all to be part of La Fosse’s future.
