EMPLOYEE OWNERSHIP MONTH
Employee Ownership Month recognizes the growing number of employees across the nation who take part in stock ownership plans. All during Employee Ownership Month, businesses and employee owners hold events acknowledging the value of employee ownership.
Through stock options, employees become invested in their company’s value. These programs are called Employee Stock Ownership Plans (ESOP). Depending on your employer, different benefits and options may be available to you. Those businesses that are employee-owned tended to be more successful. While building their career, employees strengthen their business, too.
HOW TO OBSERVE
If your employer offers ESOP, review your options and determine what is best for you. Use #EmployeeOwnershipMonth to post on social media.
Employee Ownership Month was founded by ESOP and has been celebrated for over 20 years.
