Does your business meet the certification standards?

  • Ownership: At least 30% of your company must be employee-owned (excluding founders).
  • Access: Every employee must have reasonable access to ownership.
  • Concentration: Employee-owned shares can’t be over-concentrated.

Just 1 in 200 U.S. businesses qualify for Certified Employee-Owned membership.

Their sample toolkit worksheets and webinars have been tremendously helpful in strengthening our Employee Ownership culture from internal communications, recruiting, social media, and marketing.

We are proud to display the 100% Employee-Owned Certification Mark.
