Ownership Culture Survey:
An Overview

Ownership Associates announces the November, 2005, sale of the Ownership Culture Survey™ to the National Center for Employee Ownership.

The NCEO, a nonprofit organization serving employee-ownership companies since 1980, is now the sole source for the survey items. Companies interested in employee-ownership surveys should contact the NCEO or visit the survey resources page on the NCEO website.

Ownership Culture Profile imageThe Ownership Culture Survey™ (OCS) is the only commercially available employee attitude survey designed for and used exclusively by employee-owned companies.

It provides companies with a simple way to track their progress towards a strong ownership culture, and to see at a glance how they compare to our database of employee-ownership companies, employing over 10,000 people.

How does the workforce perceive the company and the employee ownership plan? How successfully has the employee ownership program translated into a sense of ownership among employee-owners? The OCS provides comprehensive, reliable answers to these questions, allowing your company to monitor and manage its ownership culture.

The Ownership Culture Survey:

The OCS "is the best survey you can get on employee-ownership."
