3 Employee Ownership Events on December 4th
Following up on our Kelso event announcement of November 18th, we are happy to announce two further events both taking place in Frankfurt (Oder) on December 4th.
Please confirm your attendance at firstname.lastname@example.org
11.00 am – 1.15 pm Employee Financial Participation in SMEs: A strategy for labour market policy and regional business development.
The project began in October 2012 and emphasised the support and transnational exchange of knowledge and experience in shaping the future of labour policy of- Brandenburg. In the framework of the project, players from Germany, Poland and Spain came to reciprocally learn about the different forms of employee financial participation. This knowledge and experience exchange reflected trough European perspectives enriched the project of Employee Financial Participation in SMEs. The Kelso Professorship and its transnational project partners will present and conclude the results of this process on this final event. Possibilities of disseminat- ing employee financial participation schemes in Brandenburg will be also dis- cussed.
Speakers: John Menke (CEO Menke Group), Mateusz Musial (University Opole), Jone Nolte (ASLE), Jens Lowitzsch (Europa Universität Viadrina).
The project is implemented by the Kelso Professorship at Europa-Universität Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) in co-operation with six partner organisations from Germany, Poland and Spain and is supported by the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs, Women and Family Affairs of the Land of Brandenburg with funds from the European Social Fund and the Land of Brandenburg.
1.45 pm – 3.45 pm Development of a German and a Polish Employee Financial Participation Scheme on the Grounds of the ESOP Concept.
The project started in October 2011 and it has two aims: First to phrase recom- mendations to reforming the German Employee Financial Participation Act from 2009 and of the Polish support programme of “Spółki Pracownicze“, and thus to offer solutions to overcome deficits that emerge in practice. Second – based on the reform suggestions – it targets to develop national schemes on the grounds of the ESOP concept, successfully in practice in the US for more than 50 years. In our analysis, we especially considered the financial and taxation impact of employee financial participation schemes on employees and employers. During the final event we will present and discuss the results and conclusions of the project.
Speakers: Patricia Kelso (President Kelso Institute), Arkadiusz Wudarski (Collegium Polonicum & Europa Universität Viadrina), Jens Lowitzsch (Europa Universität Viadrina).
The project is implemented by the Kelso Professorship at Europa-Universität Viadrina Frankfurt (Oder) in co-operation with the Allerhand Institute Cracow and the Inter-University Centre at the Institute for East European Studies of Freie Universität Berlin and is financially supported by the German-Polish Science Foundation.
