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.
