Governance Curriculum for Employee-Ownership Companies


The Employee Ownership Management course is an intensive program designed for upper-level management within small- to mid-sized companies.  Specific tools will be presented through several topics and the course will show you how to gain a competitive advantage by managing the challenges and realizing the upside of employee ownership.  Owners, executives and managers will gain important insights in three key areas:

  • Legal and regulatory challenges, including corporate governance arrangements, fiduciary responsibilities and the role of employee ownership in corporate transactions.
  • Employee ownership in marketing and financial management, including building alliances with customers and positioning the employee-owned company.
  • Practical application of the principles of employee ownership in the day-to-day operation of the business, including managers' roles in motivation and change, financial literacy for employee owners and building a high-performance culture.

"Companies that combine ownership with a culture of participative management grow eight to 11 percent faster than those without such plans in place."

"The EO Management course has made me want to get more involved in turning CCS into a company that walks the talk.  Sharing ownership is a fundamental value.  I look forward to working with the Beyster Institute."
