About

The ESOP Company of the Year is a company that has a commitment to employee ownership, as evidenced by its involvement with The ESOP Association and its programs, as evidenced by its communications with employees, and as evidenced by its commitment to the Vision of The ESOP Association that endorses employee participation, wealth creation, and individual dignity and worth. The company should be financially solvent, and should have history as an established ESOP.  It is not necessary that the company have any one style of management, such as "work teams", "TQM", "employee committees", etc.; but overall there is an understanding that, by some manner, the majority of employees feel a sense of ownership, and/or that the ESOP is important to the company and all individuals in the company.

This award will be presented to an ESOP Company for its demonstrated commitment to employee ownership and its success in maximizing the benefits of the ESOP, regardless of company size.   All companies that submit a nomination for this award should plan to attend the Chapter Conference where awards are announced.
