Private investment hose Ardian has become Ownership Works’ first European-rooted partner, allowing the firm to support and extend the impact of its existing practice of profit sharing and implementing other value sharing schemes in its portfolio companies.

Ardian has been practicing profit sharing for nearly 15 years as part of its sustainability intuitive, and organised its first distribution in 2008. Since then, the firm has distributed a portion of capital gains at exit to more than 31,000 employees at 40 portfolio companies and assets through its Buyout, Expansion, and Infrastructure investments, representing between one to six months’ salary for each employee. Ardian’s Buyout and Expansion teams also recently committed to expand value sharing schemes to 100% of portfolio companies.

Ownership Works is a new US-based non-profit organisation that partners with companies and investors to provide all employees with the opportunity to build wealth at work. The programme will incorporate several features, including a broad-based equity plan that aims to provide all full-time employees with a pathway for sharing in the equity upside, an employee financial education programme, and an employee engagement programme.
