Henry S. Dennison
In 1916, Dennison Manufacturing established the first employer-initiated unemployment insurance system in the United States. Dennison also initiated a program to end absentee stockholder control over company policy, called the “Management Industrial Partner” program, in which absentee stockholders were issued preferred (non-voting) stock, and working managers controlled voting stock. From 1917 to 1951, Dennison Manufacturing’s sales increased from $3.5 million to over $37 million.
