Rutgers Announces Employee Ownership Research Fellows for 2021-22

Executive Director

The Rutgers Institute for the Study of Employee Ownership and Profit Sharing is the academic home for the largest collection of scholars on employee ownership. On November 11, the Institute announced the 25 scholars who will have fellowships for the 2021–2022 academic year.

Hailing from seven countries, the scholars "study every form of granting equity and profit shares to employees,” said Joseph Blasi, the director of the Institute, with a goal to “understand the conditions under which shares do and do not work well, both nationally and globally.” The fellows' research topics cover topics such as company performance, social responsibility, impact on employee-owners, conversions, and employee ownership among the formerly incarcerated.

The NCEO continues to support the Corey Rosen Fellowship as part of the Rutgers program, and this year's Rosen Fellow is Joseph Abdel-Nour, an assistant professor of finance at the ESSCA School of Management (France).

NCEO Research Director Nancy Wiefek is the Joseph Cabral Distinguished Scholar and Fellow.
