Accolade Employee-Share-Owning Partnership (AESOP), Store-Ship Enterprise & www.office.limited
Fit for Work Awards won for progressive employment policies such as Positive About Disabled People and Employee Share Ownership provided inspiration for the company to be named Accolade Partnership.
Presented by the Prime Minister in 1984, the Fit for Work Award was followed by many more accolades:
- 2x National Training Awards
- Business Sponsorship of the Arts Award
- Best Employment Practice Award
Guide Dogs for the Blind Association awarded Life Membership to our MD in 1989. His commitment to GDBA charitable causes continued with support for their recycling programme. Sadly, recycled laser toners became un-economic due to cheap Chinese 'copy-cat' cartridges which now dominate the market. To remain competitive, Accolade are forced to sell these clones but imports from China had already resulted in the demise of Tinto as brand-leader for recycled cartridges. Former Customer Service staff from Tinto are now Partners at Accolade and regularly deploy their EOS expertise to benefit Accolade customers. Historical information about the GDBA Cash for Trash initiative can be found on our original webstore from 2007. Cash for Trash
Short History of Accolade Office Supplies
Accolade started on the proceeds of a bank robbery!. Our founder chased and captured an armed bank robber. Wisely he invested the reward money in office products for resale. Initially operating from a van, his business grew rapidly and successfully. Many employees recruited way-back then are now Partners &/or shareholders in AESOP (Accolade Employee-Share-Owning Partnership).
