The National Center for Employee Ownership (NCEO) is a private, nonprofit organization.

Our events are the premier gathering places for the community of employee-owned companies and the professionals who provide services related to employee ownership.

The NCEO is a small, thriving organization with a dedicated staff of 14 and over 3000 members. We have a close-knit and collaborative culture that gives all staff members the ability to shape the course of the NCEO's work. Our hiring and key financial decisions are made collectively, and our compensation system is designed to let employees share directly in the success of the organization. Our office is located one block from the 19th St. BART station in uptown Oakland.
