Though ESOPs gained popularity as a widely used retention strategy only in the 1990s, old-economy companies such as Walt Disney, Pepsi and Warner Bros had been using them since the 1980s. Pepsi was one of the first companies to offer options to its employees.

It was also supported by various researchers as it provides employees with certain ownership in the company which could motivate them to stay with the company longer so as to obtain maximum profits in the future.
Thus, in order to succeed in removing the hindrances on the profit margins caused by the employee turnover ratios with the help of issuing ESOPs in the organization, please contact the undersigned:
