Founder and CEO Simon La Fosse established La Fosse on a shared ownership model, committing to gifting 40% of the equity to employees over time, a unique innovation in the recruitment sector.

This helps attract and retain great people and creates a collegiate culture. As Simon La Fosse said, “Everyone here has a share of the company. This makes them considerably more engaged as this isn’t my company, it’s our company.”

This co-ownership structure means a better experience for candidates and clients. As well as working hard to deliver an outstanding result on any specific role, our consultants are all focused on building long-term relationships.

Judges from the awards recognised this when they said, “There is a real demonstration that their employees live the company’s values, which translates to strong company performance.”

Recruiter Investing in Talent Awards showcase those companies building outstanding places to work. As the shared equity model is at the heart of our values and business, we are delighted to have won in this category.
