We are a national, not-for-profit membership organisation managed by a chief executive officer and led by a voluntary council. Our purpose is to promote greater employee share ownership in businesses across all sectors of the Irish economy and be the voice of employee share plan practitioners and professionals in Ireland.
We represent more than 96,500 employee share owners across a number of top tier companies in Ireland. Almost 50% of our company members are listed on the Irish Times Top 1000 firms, with 24% of these organisations occupying ranks within the Top 20 firms in the country. Of greater importance is that these firms hold employee share ownership at the core of their performance and generate more than €40 billion annually to the Irish economy.
