Employee ownership is a persuasive concept for many, owners and employees alike. But how to decide if an ESOP or other equity model is the right alternative, how to get started, and how to keep the model working once it is in place? This Reading Collection includes a selection of material related to the nuts and bolts of ESOP and other equity models.
Employee ownership has been used as a way to resolve labor-management conflict, as a way to reduce employee turnover in traditionally unstable industries, and more. In addition to primers on employee stock ownership plans, this Collection contains examples of companies who have successfully used equity ownership to address these issues, links to organizations that promote employee ownership, and more.
