The objective of this study is to analyse the ESOP implementation determinants. They include total assets (TA), debt to equity ratio (DER), market to book value ratio (MBR), growth, current ratio (CR), and time interest earned ratio (TIER) on the implementation of ESOP for companies in Indonesia.

The result of this study shows that the company size, leverage, growth, and liquidity has a significantly negative effect on the ESOP implementation.
