Once you have developed and implemented a successful Employee Share Ownership Plan for your company you will start to see the positive impacts of the ESOP.
As invested stakeholders, employees will take on more responsibility and commitment and treat your company as their own—greatly benefiting culture, output, and profitability. ESOPs also present the opportunity for owners to plan their succession in such a way that preserves legacy, lays the foundation for sustained success, and establishes retirement security.
