ESOPs in Canada
How to Implement an Employee Share Ownership Plan to Grow and Exit your Business with your Legacy Intact
by Perry Phillips and Camille Jensen

Employee Share Ownership Plans (ESOPs) are a powerful tool in a world in which it is no longer business as usual. Whether you want to attract and retain skilled workers, create a succession plan for your business, combat the “brain drain,” recognize employee contributions, or need a way to turn your company around through improvements in productivity and morale, an ESOP could be the win-win solution for your company. An ESOP is a formal plan that allows employees to purchase shares in the company they work for. Employees think and act like owners because they actually hold a very real stake in the company. Not only are ESOPs financially beneficial for employees; companies that offer these plans also reap tangible rewards in improved motivation, communication, productivity, and profitability.

“This is a must read for those business owners thinking about exploring the notion of employee ownership and discovering that ‘skin in the game’ for those on the front lines of leadership is a secret weapon to surpassing your wildest dreams and forecasts! It is magic.” — Doug Flynn, Flynn Group of Companies President and CEO “Do you want to have fully engaged employees? Do you want your business to be more productive and more profitable? If the answer to those questions is ‘Yes,’ this book will help you get there.” — David E. Clark, Dale & Lessmann LLP Partner “Perry Phillips and Camille Jensen are the leading voice of employee ownership in Canada, and in this book they have assembled the key things you need to know in order to do an ESOP right.” — Loren Rodgers, National Center for Employee Ownership Executive Director
