One-Day Employee Owner Workshops

These full-day workshops are designed for non-managerial employees (with a beginner and intermediate level of ESOP education) looking to learn more about what makes an ESOP company different from other companies. The workshops are designed to build upon each module and culminate in the OEOCs ESOP Game.

The program includes:

The ABCs of ESOPs – a basic overview of ESOP mechanics in a mixed presentation and Q&A format.
Basics of Understanding Business –
an overview of business and financial terminology and concepts.
The OEOC’s ESOP Game –
the most popular OEOC training module, this high energy, interactive game provides participants with 3 years in the lifecycle of a fictional ESOP company. Building on the first modules, the ESOP Game also expands on them to provide an understanding of the decisions that ESOP leaders need to make to keep the business running.
