Research is central to the Foundation’s mission. Over our nearly three decades of existence, we have been the nation’s leading sponsor of data collection and research programs on employee ownership, funding millions of dollars in survey data collection, analysis, fellowships, and academic inquiry.
Research based insights and innovation
For those who work there, employee owned companies generate a positive feeling that is so powerful it is difficult to put into words. But policy makers, legislators, the media, and businesses considering employee ownership can’t rely on the feelings of others. They need more than words. They need numbers, facts, and rigorous analysis.
That is where the Employee Ownership Foundation comes in. We fund the collection of data, its independent analysis, and then use this powerful evidence to convey the value of employee ownership to policy makers, businesses, and the media. Our purpose is to ensure the value and benefits of employee ownership do not get overlooked in the world of politics, news, and business. Scroll down to see the results of our work.
