ESOP Centre

The Employee Share Ownership (Esop) Centre is a non-profit subscription based organisation which draws from over 30 years of experience to inform, lobby and research in the interest of developing all forms of broad-based employee share ownership plans in the UK and Europe. The Centre works with governments, the European Commission, businesses and employee organisations to build widespread support for employee share ownership and spread the wages of capital.

Broad-based employee share ownership means that all employees in a company – from the boardroom to the shop floor – are able, and indeed incentivised, to acquire shares in the company for which they work. We believe this is good for employees, companies and the economy as a whole – a view supported by a wide range of policy makers, business leaders and ordinary employees. Now is an exciting time for employee share ownership, and the Esop Centre is committed to building on our progress of the past twenty years and helping more employees become shareholders in their companies.

A member-driven organization, we move the sustainability profession forward by empowering each other and defining professional excellence. Regardless of your area of specialization or the sector you work in, ISSP is your partner in driving change.

ProShare has been the voice of employee share ownership since 1992 when we were established by HM Government, a group of FTSE 100 companies and the London Stock Exchange to promote wider share ownership. Today, we focus solely on helping to promote employee share ownership in the UK and are the voice of employee share plan practitioners and professionals. We are funded entirely by our members.
