Transnational Corporations, International Agencies/Organizations, and Employee Ownership  - CLEO Skip to main content


As business has become more global, there seems also to have developed a concurrent and growing trend toward the globalization of various kinds of employee ownership plans among multinational or transnational corporations. Why are we seeing an expansion of such plans throughout the world? The tendency toward the globalization of business has led to a globalization of the work force, the increased mobility of which has prompted many multinationals to try to maintain consistent and uniform employment policies throughout the world in order to be fair to all of its employees, regardless of the country where they are stationed. This has apparently applied to employee ownership plans in some companies as well as to more basic benefits and other employment policies.
