Home Reports John Zogby Strategies Survey Finds Employee-Owners Are More Optimistic About Their Economic Positions Than Other U.S. Workers

An April 2017 survey conducted by John Zogby Strategies and commissioned by ESCA finds employee-owners are more than twice as likely to believe their personal financial outlook has improved compared to their peers at non-ESOP companies. Additionally, employee-owners feel better prepared to address major life expenses such as car payments, mortgages, college costs, and retirement savings, and have more confidence that they can handle surprise costs such as unexpected medical bills. According to John Zogby, “employee-owners see and feel the benefits of their ownership interests, and that makes them far more confident in their jobs and financial futures than the rest of us.”
