THIS IS THE EFES NEWSLETTER

Employee ownership was strongly growing in European companies during the last decade. 83% of all large companies have employee share plans now, compared to 40% ten years ago and only 10% in 1986.
In most cases, such plans are now designed for all employees rather than just for a small number. Ten million European employees hold shares in their company.
This is much money for employees over 200 billion Euro, over 20.000 Euro each.
Things are also changing about corporate governance: Employee ownership is now in a strategic, determining or controlling position in over 25% of all largest European companies.

Typology of employee ownership
Based on empirical and statistical observation, a typology of employee ownership can be identified: Up to 1% employee ownership appears to be insignificant or embryonic, over 1% it is becoming significant, over 6% it is strategic, over 20% it is determining, and over 50% it is controlling. Of course, here is a link with corporate governance issues. It is remarkable that employee ownership appears to be strategic, determining or controlling, not only in small and medium sized enterprises, but even in a high number of the largest European companies.
