THIS IS THE EFES NEWSLETTER
ownership was strongly growing in European companies during
the last decade. 83% of all large companies have employee
share plans now, compared to 40% ten years ago and only
10% in 1986.
In most cases, such plans are now designed for all employees
rather than just for a small number. Ten million European
employees hold shares in their company.
This is much money for employees – over 200 billion Euro,
over 20.000 Euro for each.
Things are also changing about corporate governance: Employee
ownership is now in a strategic, determining or controlling
position in over 25% of all largest European companies.
The European Federation of Employee Ownership (EFES) acts
as the umbrella organization of employee owners, companies
and all persons, trade unions, experts, researchers, institutions
looking to promote employee ownership and participation
With the help of experts, lawyers and economists, the EFES
is setting up a European centre for information, meeting,
research, training, advice and representation about employee
ownership and participation. It also organises many events and meetings in Europe.
EFES' monthly newsletter and press review are addressed
to 200.000 people across Europe and abroad.
