If you are looking for someone to talk to about employee ownership, contact us. The Illinois Chapter of the ESOP Association is the right place to start for all of your questions!
We believe that employee ownership has and will continue to improve the landscape of American business locally, nationally and internationally. Due to its structure, it helps companies stay in America to continue the rich tradition of American prosperity and ingenuity. It increases productivity through a greater sense of participation of its employee owners. It reduces turnover and unemployment due to the high level of retirement benefits it provides. Finally, it provides the employee owners a feeling of self-worth and dignity that makes their workplace more than a 'job'.
We hope to increase the number of employee owners in the American workforce and continue to create a sense of pride in the workplace where Americans can share in the wealth for which they worked so hard to create.
