Employee-owned businesses have:
- Lower turnover: Workers at employee-owned businesses have 46% longer job tenure than their peers in firms that are not employee-owned*
Higher productivity: Employee-owned enterprises reported productivity levels that were 9–19% higher than levels in traditionally structured similar businesses*
Higher profits: Employee-owned firms have an average profit margin almost 8.5% higher than the average private firm*
Greater resilience: In 2020, during COVID business shut downs, employee-owned companies were less than half as likely to lay off employees and 6x more likely to say they expected to make a full recovery*
