HARVEY Maps is an employee owned company.
This means that every member of our team, no matter what their role, is committed to delivering the best possible service and has a voice in how the company is run.
A key aspect of being employee owned is that employees are elected by their peers to serve on both the Board of Trustees and the Board of Directors. By putting its employees at the heart of the organisation, HARVEY Maps is proud to be an employee owned company.
