Article publication date: 1 May 1992


Examines the implementation of profit sharing and employee ownership schemes, uses some case examples to show how the popularity of these concepts has grown over the years. Presents the results of recent research on top management views of such schemes, which show a high percentage of managers in favour of them in order to encourage employee involvement and commitment. Looks at the gains and benefits that may follow as a result of these schemes, but also warns that there may be problems too if the schemes are not properly thought out.
