We’re reimagining equity to build wealth for all.
Ownership Works is a nonprofit organization that partners with companies and investors to provide all employees with the opportunity to build wealth at work. We’ve seen broad-based employee ownership create meaningful wealth-building opportunities for employees, uplift families, reinvigorate corporate cultures, and improve business performance. Providing all employees with a stake in the value they help create is not just better business and smarter investing, it’s also the right thing to do.
Create $20 Billion of Wealth in 10 Years
More successful companies. More successful employees. That’s why Ownership Works.
Employee ownership can unlock new levels of success for companies and employees, increasing workers' access to and participation in wealth creation. At scale, employee ownership can help low- and moderate- income households and people of color access the single largest source of wealth in America: stock ownership. Through shared ownership programs that support better corporate cultures and returns, we aim to generate at least $20 billion of wealth for lower-income and diverse workers over the next decade.
The Shared Ownership Roadmap
Shared ownership means giving every employee the opportunity to become an owner who has a stake in their employer’s long-term success. When paired with an “ownership culture” of high engagement and voice, shared ownership creates an alignment of interests that can drive superior company performance and generate greater economic opportunity for workers. In collaboration with our founding partners, Ownership Works helps public and private companies develop, implement, and evaluate holistic broad-based employee ownership programs.
