SU Celebrates Recent Staff and Faculty Successes


Management and Marketing Professors Emeriti Publish, Present on Employee Ownership

“John Lewis Partnership Approaching 100 Years – Now What?” a paper examining the future of the United Kingdom’s largest employee-owned business by Drs. Frank Shipper and Richard Hoffman, professors emeriti of management and marketing in SU’s Franklin P. Perdue School of Business, recently was published in The Case Journal.

Mary Ann Beyster, president of the Foundation for Enterprise Development, called the article “very timely and very well written,” adding: “This shows how a major retailer can compete with in-store and online offerings. That kind of creativity and commitment is achieved through engaged and creative employers.”

Shipper presented an update on his and Hoffman’s research on the company at this year’s Beyster Symposium, hosted by the Rutgers University School of Management and Labor Relations’ Institute for the Study of Employee Ownership and Profit Sharing.

At the symposium, he also served as a discussant for the presentation “Five Demographic Trends to Enhance and Evolve Equity Participation Plans” by Rutgers’ Bill Castellano, Wawa Fellow with the New Jersey/New York Center for Employee Ownership.

In addition, Shipper presented a second research update on the Employee Ownership Annotated Bibliography, which he co-authored for Oxford University Press with Dr. Joseph Blasi, J.
