INCEO's Mission Statement:
The mission of the Indiana Center for Employee Ownership, Inc. (INCEO) is to promote better understanding of the value of employee ownership among business leaders, public officials, employees, members of the media, students, teachers, nonprofit leaders, consumers, and other persons and organizations in Indiana. The primary element of our mission is education and advocacy on behalf of employee ownership within the state of Indiana. We accomplish our mission through:
Education of non ESOP business leaders through various professional organizations such as the chamber of commerce, to inform and answer questions on how employee ownership and ESOPs may be a viable tool for succession planning.
Informing our state senators and representatives:
- On pro-ESOP legislation enacted in other states.
- The number of ESOPs, and Indiana voters that are within each of our legislative districts.
- Encouraging our state level representatives to visit the ESOP companies in their districts.
Informing Indiana ESOPs about federal legislation:
- What bills have been introduced.
- Which Indiana Representatives and Senators have introduced or co-sponsored pro-ESOP legislation.
- Of the pro-ESOP legislation that went to vote, which Representative or Senator supported it, and which did not.
Increasing the awareness at an academic level within Indiana business schools concerning the benefits of broad based employee ownership and ESOPs.
