Employee ownership as a strategy for business and workforce retention

Small, locally owned businesses are essential to Fremont’s local economy and regional community vitality. Among the challenges the city faces is keeping businesses and the jobs they provide rooted in the community, as the Silver Tsunami – the retirement of baby boomer business owners – impacts the region.

Manufacturing in Fremont

Manufacturing accounts for a whopping 21% of the San Francisco Bay Area’s regional GDP. In the city of Fremont, CA, alone, the manufacturing cluster provides one in every four jobs. These are solid middle class jobs that pay well, have professional advancement opportunities, and are generally accessible to people without a four-year college degree. In our recent study, we found 38% of Fremont’s manufacturing and related supply chain businesses are more than twenty years old. What happens when these business owners retire? How many of them will be sold to an out-of-town buyer or, worse, simply liquidate and close their doors?
