Linkphoto-editedAre you looking for ways to make an annual ESOP meeting more engaging and educational? Many ESOP companies hold meetings when the required ESOP participant statements have been prepared. If you’ve been running that meeting for a few years, you know that keeping it fresh is very important for it to be meaningful.

Providing a routine review of the statement or plan provisions may be a recipe for boring the more tenured employees and confusing the newbies. If your real goal is to connect what people do each day with the rewards on that ESOP statement, you may want to consider the benefits of Workplace Development’s custom Line-Of-Sight ESOP Sessions for your company meeting.

Workplace Development offers ESOP-owned companies workshops that:

• Create enthusiasm and business focus

• Teach employees how their jobs impact stock value

• Provide an understandable explanation of key ESOP concepts

• Bring outside credibility to your company’s unique ESOP message

• Gain more business impact from required ESOP statements

Workplace Development associates — Cathy Ivancic and Jim Bado — have helped hundreds of ESOP companies strengthen the impact of their ESOP through communication, education, and organizational development services.
