About This MeetingWorker cooperatives and ESOPs share some of the same fundamental questions, such as tensions between employee involvement and agile decision-making, between individual and group benefit, and how to bring new workers into their cultures. They also face different financial, legal, and cultural challenges, and in response they have created different solutions to their business challenges. Those differences provide fertile ground for members of worker cooperatives and ESOPs to learn from each other.
You will learn:
- to learn the main legal, financing, and business differences between worker cooperatives and ESOPs
- to help ESOPs use or adapt best practices developed by worker cooperatives in areas such as governance, group process training, and multiple bottom lines
- to help worker cooperatives use or adapt best practices developed by the ESOP community in conversions of existing businesses and business planning
