Funded programmes June 2022 onwards
I am moved to write this as a blog as I ran out of space on Linked In – which annoys me often! Here at Ethos we are looking to map action-oriented agendas of people in the social / environmental space, thereby connecting groups around themes. ( Further to my Linked in post of May […]
Backing our Young Leaders – a Workplace Experiment with Valuable Outcomes
Over lockdown, EthosVO adapted its peer-to-peer work system so that young adults were able to start socially valuable work quickly and receive income for doing so. This scheme, which we call Ethos Young Leaders, has quickly become a new driving force of Ethos.
Author Robert Pye Founded Ethos in 2010 with Tony Clarke . Have been working on networked business models since the late 90's. Living a dream: playing on both sides of the fence! Institutions and networks. Bragging rights: ‘My work is my hobby. My profession is being a father!’ View all posts
Ethos is a worker owned cooperative. Our partners are motivated more by creating social value than just working for money alone. So it’s probably worth defining what we mean by social value. We like this definition: Social Value is a measure of the importance that an individual or community places in a change that results […]
Publishing my tax returns online
It’s a perennial question on the minds of some: “Is he on the make?”. We know Trump has furiously resisted publishing his tax returns.

Social Impact Bonds. A step in the right direction?
Someone suggested that I write a brief explanation of social impact bonds before I expand on the main story which looks at how SIBs have the possibility to drive system change. The first paragraph below explains “payments by results”(PBR). The second Social Impact Bonds (SIBS). PBR is a type of contract popularised by many UK […]
The most significant event since the .COM crash?
Full disclosure – I have some pretty insignificant investments in the coin-o-sphere – please don’t make any investment decisions based on this story!! I’ve been a tech-cum-businessman for about 30 years. More recently (last 7) I’d probably substitute the businessman for “social-entrepreneur”. Why “social”? I believe that a new lexicon needs to be developed for […]
YOU have my permission (aka Annabelle ruined my life!)
I woke last saturday morning before 6.00am as I’m in the habit of doing nowadays. After a great Ethos week I inevitably found my head full of Ethos thoughts and “buzzing” with synthesising feelings (the weekends are much needed time for me in this respect) and thoughts that seem to emerge several days after the […]
Making GDPR more interesting
Many of you may have heard of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) coming out of the EU. Brexit or not, every UK organisation, will need to comply. It’s about personal data and is much wider and deeper than the UK’s existing Data Protection Act (DPA). GDPR will come into force mid 2018 and aims to […]
