An employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) is an employee benefit plan that gives workers ownership interest in the company in the form of shares of stock. Employers can use ESOPs to align the interests of their employees with those of their shareholders. ESOPs boost employee satisfaction, retention, and job performance by linking your business’s financial success to employee retirement benefits; the better your business performs as a whole, the more your employees will benefit from their hard work.
