Employee Ownership Video Collection

Enterprising Owners marks the 30-year anniversary of the Foundation for Enterprise Development (FED) by presenting the early motivations of Dr. J.R Beyster, the founder of FED and SAIC (U.S. largest employee-owned research and engineering firm thru mid-2000’s), along with current motivations of the next generation.

Mary Ann’s first publicly-available projects are a set of more than 20 videos on the research and practice of rewarding employees with meaningful ownership and participation, and how that drives opportunities for economic development, firm performance, and lifetime wealth and prosperity.
