About ESOPs

An Employee Share Ownership Plan (ESOP) allows employees, who qualify, to purchase shares in their employer's company, with or without the monetary assistance from the company.

Employees can acquire shares and ownership through an ESOP that can range from one percent to 100 percent.

The key aspect is that employees have an ownership stake in the company they work for, and share in the risks and rewards that accrue to it.
