Virginia Labor Studies Center
Virginia ESOP Education Service (VEES)

The Virginia ESOP Education Service (VEES), part of the Virginia Labor Studies Center at Virginia Commonwealth University School of Business, is a non-profit program created at the request of the Commonwealth of Virginia and the National Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOP) Association. We provide impartial guidance to Virginia employees and employers who are considering employee ownership. Through our education programs, you will receive information on building employee participation systems, enhancing leadership skills and understanding legislative issues.

Through our research and contact with other ESOP organizations we provide current information tailored to Virginia's economic environment. We also recommend additional resources that can assist you to explore employee ownership plans.
