EOF Executive Series Research

For the past four years, the Employee Ownership Foundation has funded the National ESOP Employee Survey through Louis O. Kelso Fellowships at the Rutgers Institute for the Study of Employee Ownership and Profit Sharing.  


Using the data collected, the Foundation partnered with Rutgers to begin a yearlong series of academic inquiry that explores different questions that current and prospective ESOP executives and employees face. Below are a selection of questions and key findings about those questions, as prepared by Louis B. Kelso Fellow, Jungook Kim.


How Do Pay and Other Benefits Compare Between ESOP and Non-ESOP Firms?

ESOP Communication: Does It Even Matter?

Younger Workers in ESOPs: What To Do?

Do ESOP Employees Have Better Relationships With Their Supervisors?
