About the 2016 ESPP Survey

The NCEO collaborated with the National Association of Stock Plan Professionals (NASPP) and the Certified Equity Professional Institute at Santa Clara University (CEPI) to develop and distribute this survey. The survey was conducted in January through February 2016 and includes responses from 239 companies that currently have an ESPP (qualified or not) in which more than 40% of employees are eligible to participate.

With questions written by experts in the field, the resulting data is a unique source for insight into trends in:
  • plan design;
  • participation rates;
  • compensation cost;
  • run rates;
  • overall satisfaction with the plan;
  • and more.

You can view a PDF of the questionnaire. Members can get a free one-page summary of the results (member login required).

What You Receive

Purchasers receive a comprehensive report of survey data that provides descriptive statistics for all items in the survey, a narrative describing methods and highlights, and an analysis of the relation between plan design features and outcomes such as satisfaction and changes in participation rates. It will be delivered by email within one business day after you place your order.

If you have questions about the ESPP survey results, contact Nancy Wiefek at or 510-208-1312.
