Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP)

An employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) is a type of profit-sharing benefit plan that may be offered to employees by companies. Basically, the company gives the employee shares of the company’s stock.
This is supposed to align the employee’s motivation and incentives with the goals and objectives of the company. When the company does well and the stock price goes up, the company is worth more and the employee shares in the profits. Therefore, this type of incentive plans ideally makes employees behave in a manner that benefits the company or organization as a whole.
Employee stock ownership plans are qualified benefits according to the IRS. They offer tax benefits to the employer and the employee because the stock purchases are tax-deductible.
