What is Employee Ownership?
- Employee ownership has many forms. Two of the main forms are Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs) and worker cooperatives.
- In both, employees are given a financial stake in the business. As the business prospers, employees prosper.
- This creates increased employee engagement and therefore an average 8% increase in productivity.
- Pennsylvania based ESOP NewAge Industries, Inc. has seen a 1025% increase in share price since the inception of the ESOP.
Why Is This Important?
- Over the next 10 years, 4.5 million businesses are going to transact.

- Other businesses will close, simply because they don’t have a succession plan. 70% of business owners over 55 say they have no succession plan.
