Conference “Taking Action: Promotion of Employee Share Ownership – Debating concrete policy options”

Several EU reports have highlighted the positive impact of employee ownership and participation on the economic results of businesses and on the motivation and retention of employees. Employees are also well placed to engage with their companies against a long-term horizon. For these reasons, employee ownership and participation may well be the key to resolving many of the problems arising from the financial and economic crisis.
