Financial participation is a mechanism by which employees are provided with a stake in the performance or ownership of an organization. This stake is reflected in remunerative arrangements, typically in the form of a payment linked to a corporate outcome measure or to an allocation of shares in the company. This article presents a structured and systematic overview of the character, use, and consequences of financial participation, with a view to exploring the contributions made by these different research communities to ongoing debate and understanding. In doing so, it also provides a map to facilitate movement through the considerable volume of material on the topic. The article considers the approaches to financial participation, the adoption of schemes, and the outcomes of various kinds.

Keywords: financial participation; performance; ownership; research communities; schemes
