In We the Owners: Employees Expanding the American Dream (2012), the global 21st
century labor marketplace is the target of investigation. The film looks at the growing demand for new employee-ownership models of human resource compensation.
Proponents of EVA (Economic Value Added) strategies argue that the shift from organizational strategies, to a new principle of shareholder value, is nothing short of good governance. Highly responsive to flexible capitalization and competitive labor market incentives, EVA is well-suited to global human resource management (HRM).
The utility of EVA leverage offers organizations stability. Employee ‘selfishness’ is a ‘good’; the mark of EVA output where consecutive incentives are a reward for a ‘job well done’. EVA program scheme range from single year goal setting, to multi-year accountability.
EVA compensation strategies now vital to the adoption of employee-ownership strategies, create the circumstance for sustained organizational growth. When profits are high, short-term contracts can be turned into long-term loyalty. Equity-like payoffs afforded in EVA scheme ultimately hedge against the treacheries of short-term volatility, allowing stakeholders to capitalize on exposure without the more dangerous side of risk.
The film addresses the topic of employee-ownership scheme, and features interviews with stakeholders of the New Belgium Brewing Company, DPR Construction, and Namasté Solar. Calls for greater transparency in HRM program support of workers involved in employee-ownership programs, as well as attention to the 4Rs (recruitment, revenue, risk, and retention) as intangible values attendant to those compensation scheme.We the Owners: Employees Expanding the American Dream
