Fieldfisher partner Graeme Nuttall OBE, has been appointed an Executive Fellow at The Institute for the Study of Employee Ownership and Profit Sharing at the Rutgers School of Management and Labor Relations.
The New Jersey school is the world’s first academic institute dedicated to researching capital shares and their impact on the economy.
Awarded on a competitive basis, the fellowships will enable 22 scholars from colleges, universities, and policy centers worldwide to research the impact of broad-based employee share ownership, equity compensation, gain sharing, profit sharing, and worker cooperatives. This marks the 10th year of the fellowship program. Graeme is one of only two new fellows from the UK this year.
In his new role at Rutgers, Graeme will report on national policies on employee ownership at the renowned Beyster Symposium and Mid-Year Fellows Workshop in Honor of Louis O. Kelso and work with the Institute on developing new policies.
Joseph Blasi, the J. Robert Beyster Distinguished Professor and the Director of Rutgers' Institute for the Study of Employee Ownership and Profit Sharing said:
"We are truly honoured to welcome Graeme Nuttall OBE as an Executive Fellow. His work with Her Majesty's Treasury Advisory Group in the UK and his authorship of the Nuttall Report on opportunities to expand employee ownership in the UK, position him as a rare resource for other nations around the world whose governments wish to develop workable employee ownership policies. Graeme has distinguished himself as one of the few leading policy experts on this subject worldwide. His broad and interdisciplinary perspective will be invaluable in helping to guide researchers worldwide in asking the right research questions and conducting well-grounded policy analysis. Moreover, as the two leading countries that have implemented employee share plans worldwide, the US and the UK have an enormous amount to learn from each other from a comparative perspective."
Graeme has influenced employee ownership policy in a number of countries, including the US, which now recognises the perpetual trust model following presentations given by Graeme at consecutive conferences of the US National Center for Employee Ownership.
Graeme is the author of the Nuttall Review of Employee Ownership for the UK Government. He is also Deputy Chair of the UK Employee Ownership Sector Group and a Trustee of the Institute for the Future of Work.
