The effects of employee ownership on productivity and firm financial performance: The case of the U.S. commercial airline industry

Rosemary T DeRiso, Fordham University

Abstract

This paper examines whether there exists a relationship between employee ownership and the financial and productivity performances of the firm. The firm examined in this study is the U.S. commercial airline industry. The focus of this paper is on the airline industry, as in the years following deregulation of the airlines, many carriers implemented employee ownership plans in lieu of wage increases. Prior research in the field has indicated there is a positive relationship between employee ownership and firm performance. My data thus far has been consistent with most of the earlier findings, although I will be looking at how the employee owned airlines fared after September 11th, and the implementation of new plan since the terrorist attacks. ^
