The NCEO publishes a yearly list of America’s 100 largest companies (by employee count) that are majority employee-owned.

We include companies that are at least 50% owned by an ESOP or other qualified plan, or by one or more other kinds of plans in which at least 50% of full-time employees are eligible to participate. Employment includes all full- and part-time employees in the U.S. and worldwide.

Data is collected from direct correspondence with companies, corporate websites, or, if these are not available, the most recent public data available. Companies marked with an asterisk are 100% employee-owned. Additions and corrections are welcome; please contact Dallan Guzinski, Director of Culture and Engagement, at

In 2019, the top 100 employee-owned companies employ more than 610,000 people.
