A comprehensive culture survey for ESOP companies. 

The NCEO's Ownership Culture Survey gives you the tools to measure your employee ownership culture effectively. This comprehensive survey helps assess how well employee-owners at your company understand the ESOP, understand their role in creating value, and have the tools, skills, and information to act like owners. With this data, you can assess company strengths and weaknesses, measure progress over time, set concrete goals, and focus your energy where you'll get the greatest payoff.

Survey results include comparison data from over 27,000 respondents at more than 160 companies. You receive an easy-to-understand report with specific recommendations based on your results, as well as consultations to help you act on the data.
