Employee Ownership and Corporate Performance: A Review of Research on U.S. Companies

by: The National Center for Employee Ownership
Source: The National Center for Employee Ownership 

This issue brief, which replaces an older book with the same name, summarizes studies on the relationship between employee ownership, employee participation, and corporate performance that have been performed in the last few decades. Most of the studies are on ESOPs, not on stock options and other forms of equity compensation, simply because most of the research, especially in past years, has been on ESOPs.
