One of the changes that require the most focus as a result of redefining the firm is the restructuring of corporate ownership. Since the firm's most important knowledge resources will come from individuals, it is appropriate for the firm to recognize the rights of these individuals regarding their participation in the ownership of the firm. This chapter presents a range of schemes that have offered workers varying levels of participation in the ownership of the firms where they were employed. The chapter also enumerates and explains both the positive and negative determinants of worker ownership and further analyses the emerging trends in worker participation in ownership and its implications on corporate strategies.

Keywords:   corporate ownership, participation, individuals, workers, knowledge resource
