What if 30% of all businesses were owned by employees?

According to a Harvard Review Study (2021), “The share of wealth held by the bottom 50% of Americans would more than quadruple, jumping from just 1.4% of the total net worth of Americans to 6.4%.”

That’s why RMEOC is here to promote employee-owned businesses in the Rocky Mountain Region.

The Path To Employee Ownership

Sourcing Solutions

We help you explore employee ownership options, from ESOPs to worker co-ops and more, and choose the one that’s the best fit for you, your employees, and your
business.

Implementation

We help you structure the employee-owned entity, devise the logistics of the sale, and refer you to knowledgeable legal and financial advisors along the way to guide and close the deal.

Education

We help employee owners understand their new roles to get the most out of the transition, and help create an ongoing culture of engagement for a more democratic and participatory workplace.

We believe that our economy should work for everyone – and broad-based ownership is one of the most effective tools to make that happen.

Employee ownership builds stronger businesses, creates better jobs, and helps develop more sustainable and resilient local economies — and it’s a powerful way to address racial and social inequality.
