Ohio’s Employee Owned Network

Establishing an employee owned firm or company is only the beginning. ESOP companies face a unique and ongoing set of challenges. These include building a corporate culture of ownership, mastering the technical elements of their form of ownership, and creating a new way of looking at work.

Our Mission

Ohio’s Employee-Owned Network’s mission is to provide a forum for employee-owned businesses and others to learn from each other how to make employee ownership work more effectively at your companies; and to address the unique challenges and potential of employee ownership.

Ohio’s Employee Owned Network members jointly-sponsor a year-round series of education and multi company programs. Members enjoy group rates and discounts on program registrations; and non-members among the employee owned business community are welcome to participate in most of the Network’s programs.

Other benefits of Network membership include:  consultation with OEOC staffers, at no additional fee, on ESOP-related issues and challenges; and discounts on in-company education and training programs.

  • Build employee involvement skills
  • Bring employee owners together to explore common problems and share experiences in dealing with ESOP administrative and HR issues
