Other studies have found that ESOPs increase employee wealth and wagesESOP companies provide more sustainable employmentS Corporation ESOP companies are more stable, provide increased job satisfaction, and have higher organizational commitment, and that employee ownership increases job satisfaction, innovation, and productivity.

The National Center for Employee Ownership has just released results from the first phase of an ongoing research project that compares the economic well-being of employee-owners early in their careers with that of other young workers. The findings, based on data collected by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, are remarkable.

Employee ownership has great potential to stabilize employment, to root productive capital in communities, and to increase the assets and incomes of working families.
