ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the study conducted by the U.S. National Center for Employee Ownership, of what it is that makes some companies' employee ownership plans (ESOP) more effective than others. The results provide important lessons for companies that want to create a more effective and rewarding workplace. The most successful companies studied did three things. They made large annual contributions to the ESOP, their management really treated employees as owners, and they provided employees with significant opportunities to participate in their firm. In short, they constantly reinforced the idea of ownership.
