EOM Toolkits & Proclamations

Employee Ownership Month gives us an opportunity to educate the public and elected officials as to why employee ownership is good public policy. This toolkit was designed to help you educate your community by securing an Employee Ownership Month proclamation from an elected official.

Hosting an elected official at your company or firm is a powerful, easy, and often fun way to share your ESOP story. It’s an opportunity to explain not just the valuable services and products your business provides, but the fact that it’s driven by something different — employee ownership. This toolkit was designed to walk through the simple steps to successfully host an elected official, so you can focus on how you will tell your story.

Advocacy relies on several factors, but grassroots support and activity are key. The Employee Ownership Action Network is the employee ownership community’s grassroots arm of employee owners and professionals fighting to protect ESOPs. Take the first steps to support ESOP Advocacy with this toolkit of EOAN resources that show you how to promote EOAN within your company or firm.
