Quote: Employee Ownership

"I like to think people hang out here because they like me, but they're here to make money. As long as the stock is going up, they love it here." --CEO, $185 million transportation company in Texas

"My prejudice is that ownership is a more powerful motivator than money. It's more a question of keeping people involved. Here people can choose money or stock. Only one employee ever took the money." --CEO, $13 million manufacturer in Kentucky

"Having stock options has helped individuals think more like owners than like employees. We've seen a shift in how decisions are made as a result. Like purchasing and staffing decisions. Employees with options no longer simply suggest, 'Spend more money or hire more people.' They're thinking of other solutions." --Founder, $23 million health-care-administration company in Illinois
