It has both internal and external benefits for ESOP-owned companies. As the ESOP Association puts it, “This is a terrific celebration of the spirit of employee ownership, and an invaluable opportunity to educate employee owners, elected officials, the media and the public at large about the benefits of employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs).”

In the three months leading up to October, ESOP communication teams or leaders plan their celebration. If you’re looking for a new learning event, online education resources, custom ESOP education materials, videos, train-the-trainer tools, committee coaching or an interactive, on-site presentation, contact Cathy Ivancic at or 330-896-7285, extension 101.
