New Resources for Employee Ownership Month

Director of Education

Employee Ownership Month provides us with an opportunity to celebrate, reward, and educate employee-owners and the companies they work for. Stepping back, it’s helpful to understand the history behind the celebration and why it matters today. That’s where this month’s Download (solutions-focused, member-exclusive content delivered to your inbox monthly) comes in. The October resource is a two-page handout* that provides the background and context for Employee Ownership Month (available in Spanish on the aforementioned Download landing page)*. 

For any company looking to add a game to this month’s celebrations, we’ve created an Employee Ownership Trivia game for members to use. Some questions have been designed to include details about your company and ESOP, so be sure to update those answers on the sheet before playing. The trivia and answer key are also available in Spanish*.

The NCEO has also created a new toolkit designed to provide resources to assist with planning and execution, divided into four categories:

  • History and significance of EO Month
  • Content and planning
  • Recognition and celebration
  • Learning from other companies 

Whether you have already had active communication and celebration in the first half of the month or are looking for ideas to add content for October, the EO Toolkit is full of ideas for companies at every stage of the ESOP journey.
