What Is An ESOP?

Employee Stock Ownership Plans, or ESOPs, offer a unique solution that benefits everyone involved. Imagine business owners passing the torch not to a single successor, but to the very heart of the company: its dedicated workforce. Through an ESOP, ownership shares are sold to a trust, which then holds them for the benefit of employees. This innovative approach creates a win-win-win for the company, its employees, and the departing owners.
