The National Center for Employee Ownership (NCEO) is a private, nonprofit membership and research organization that serves as the leading source of accurate, unbiased information on employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs), equity compensation plans such as stock options, and ownership culture. We are the main publisher and research source in the field, hold dozens of Webinars and in-person meetings annually, and provide services to our thousands of members.

Although we publish many books and other resources on employee ownership, you will find many articles on our site that explain what the various employee ownership plans are, how they work, what the basic statistics are, and what researchers have found. Below are some selected links you may find useful. Contact information is in the sidebar on this page.
