ESOPs are a retirement plan that provide employees with an opportunity to share in the profits they help create. Unlike 401(k)s, ESOPs typically have no out-of-pocket expense for employees and, according to national research, ESOP companies often excel at creating an engaging workplace culture. These plans can provide tax benefits for the business and the owners who sell their shares to an ESOP.
