The pandemic placed the economy into a sickening tailspin. The crisis has brought enormous pain. Can it also catalyze advantageous changes that expand opportunity and equity? Companies can share economic success through various models. Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOPs), worker cooperatives, profit sharing, and forms of equity participation all present different opportunities to share that success. Employee-owned firms have also shown strong resilience through economic downturns and often use management approaches that lead to higher-quality jobs. How can these strategies help shape the economic rebuilding that is to come? How can they address the inequalities and inequities that have divided our society and help us build a more resilient economy?
