Employee shareholdership: A survey among German listed companies (in German)
A study conducted by Deutsches Aktieninstitut and Ernst [&] Young (EY) shows that many stock listed companies already provide a share based compensation or intend to implement one. Nevertheless, the potential for employee shareholdership in Germany is far from being exhausted. Therefore, responding companies ask politicians to improve public support. Companies which do not provide a share plan mainly state that they fear the implementation costs.
