Australian Institute Survey on the Prevalence of Employee Share Plans

by Employee Share Ownership on July 10, 2013

The Australia Institute conducted an online survey in April 2013. Respondents were sourced from a reputable independent online source and they earn reward points to participate. Results were post weighted (n = 1,407) by age and gender based on the profile of the adult Australian population. Small variations in sample size can occur from rounding errors as a result of the weighting process.
Survey question
Has a company you have worked for ever invited you to be part of an employee share or equity plan?
