Our mission

Sharing ownership

It’s a level playing field at Thomson, where the people get the chance to own the company after one successful year with us. You don’t pay for this; you earn it. In our first half-year of employee ownership, we paid a tax-free bonus to all employee owners of 3% of their pay.


From the senior leadership team down to the boots on the ground, the gender balance is kept even at 50/50 men and women, and there is no gender discrimination in salaries.
