Be ESOP SMART in 2022

With 2021 almost over, it’s time to plan for 2022.

Safety Game Gets Employees Thinking at BSC Ventures’ Annual Meeting

Do employees at your company roll the dice on safety sometimes? We all probably do, often without even thinking about it. Facing that challenge, BSC Ventures, a custom envelope manufacturer, had a new request for their ESOP annual meeting: let’s play a game that teaches our employee owners how important workplace safety is for all of us, our company and for driving ESOP stock value. That’s how the Workplace Development’s Safety Game was born!
