Employee stock option is an employee equity ownership plan that can include stock, stock options or what is often referred to as phantom stock. Employee stock option plans have been popularized by the success realized by technology firms such as Microsoft, Cisco Systems, and Grameenphone in that the implementation of stock option plans has resulted in great personal wealth for the early employees of these companies. ESOPs represent more as a mechanism whereby employees can generate a different source of income through their stock options. These plans represent a means for a given enterprise’s various stakeholder groups to mutually benefit and generate lasting wealth, not only for the individuals associated with the company, but also for the region in which it is located.
