It's one of my basic (perhaps naive) believes that an important way to keep employees throughout the organization on-board with the company's highest aim (increased shareholder value), the company has to make its employees core shareholders of the business.If you create enough potential ownership value for employees, they'll probably even accept periodic enforced slowdowns and wage cuts to keep the enterprise competitive the world over. If I've been working at General Motors for 15 years on a manufacturing floor, and my GM stock plan is driving substantial value my way, I'm less likely to want to bring business to a grinding halt to make my point.Which all leads me to asking: How substantial is GM's stock plan -- in general and relative to the competition? Why wouldn't GM suffer some short-term dilution to get all of its employees onboard as important owners? Wouldn't you think most GM shareholders today would applaud a little dilution in exchange for a more enterprising workforce?Isn't stock value appreciation the name of the game -- and can't that be achieved by getting everyone in the workplace concentrated on that end (and rewarded for succeeding in that mission)?What say you, Fools?Tom
