Using matched employer- employee data from the 1998 Workplace Employee RelationsSurvey, it is suggested that the presence of employee share ownership at a workplace is not significantly associated with employee commitment to the organization. There is evidence of a significant negative relationship between share ownership and workplace turnover, which explains part of the positive share ownership/ performance relationship. This calls into question the postulate that share ownership has its main impact upon performance via the closer alignment of employees' and employers' values and interests - the golden path - rather than the lowering of employee turnover - the golden handcuffs.
