Abstract

The cooperative model is known for its resilience and objective that prioritizes the common needs of their members, rather than returns for shareholders. The governance model follows a value-driven logic and a democratic structure, in that decision making is based on the “one person - one vote” principle. Under this umbrella, employee-owned businesses (EOBs) are organizations where the employees own and manage the company. Like other types of cooperatives, they arevalue driven, member owned, and democratically controlled organizations; principles that explain why EOBs have been economically sound and more resilient to crisis, such as Covid, compared to other types of organizations.
