Identifying potential investors and/or evaluating and implementing employee ownership options such as employee stock option plans (ESOPs) or co-ops
Researching and writing engaging case studies highlighting innovative practices from companies throughout the U.S.
We’ve been privileged to delve deeply into the innovative employee engagement practices at leading companies around the U.S. such as New Belgium Brewing, Dansko, King Arthur Flour, Zappos, Zingerman’s, Tasty Catering, Marlin Steel, Better World Books, Namaste Solar, SRC Remanufacturing, Southern Energy Management, and The Redwoods Group. Broughton Consulting takes lessons learned from these and other business leaders and adapts them to meet the needs of our clients.
Broughton Consulting specializes in working with small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs), usually ranging from five to 500 employees but sometimes up to 1,000; we can also work with larger companies or nonprofits. Our approach is to sit down together and learn about your company’s needs and aspirations, and then to work with you to identify and implement creative and effective solutions
