1.0 out of 5 stars Bosses Charter, 17 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: How to Step Out - Your guide to leading a mutual or social enterprise spin out from the public sector (Paperback)
The physical quality of the book and the delivery were fine. The contents are as I feared - a guide for public sector managers on how to take their service out into the private sector and preserve a living for themselves, at the expense of employee terms and conditions. All public sector workers should read this book and then redouble their efforts, along with their Trade Unions, to resist this creeping privatisation of public services. Remember, Social Enterprises make profits for Social Entrpreneurs!

As someone who spent 23 years in the public sector at a range of grades this is the type of comment which belies the fact that we cannot afford to deliver, nor indeed should deliver, many of the services currently delivered by the public sector. This is especially so in health and social care. Social Enterprise delivers services at higher quality and at lower cost than the public sector and Dearden-Phillips clearly demonstrates how this can be done. Also SEs make a surplus, (not a profit) which is reinvested in the business or into community projects. Mutuals empower employees by making them part owners of the business who have an increased opportunity of reward as the business grows. This type of review is stuck in the 70s.
