Your participation helps build the data needed for increased policy support, funding and technical assistance for worker co-ops nationwide. The U.S. Federation of Worker Cooperatives and the Democracy at Work Institute invite you to participate in their annual census to study the economic and social benefits of worker co-ops.

This is an opportunity to contribute to the major, ongoing research that will not only help shape the future of worker cooperatives in the U.S., but also demonstrate the strength, relevance and accelerated growth of the sector.

The 2017 Worker Co-op Census builds on earlier research, including the 2010 Shared Capitalism at Work study by Joseph Blasi, Douglas Kruse and Richard Freeman that documented how employee ownership through employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs) and profit sharing is linked to higher job quality, lower turnover and more involvement in management decisions.

The Federation and the Institute suspect this association is even stronger in cooperatives that pair worker ownership with democratic governance, and census data will help build that case.
