Let us help you spread the word on employee ownership this October.
Recently, we were talking to one of our members about her ESOP company’s preparations for Employee Ownership Month (EOM). She shared some of her concerns:
She was not sure how much bandwidth her fellow employee owners would have for EOM activities, especially since many have school age children who will be home while attending classes remotely this fall.
By surviving tough times and retaining employees, ESOPs benefit the nation as a whole.
As companies re-open and the standards change for how to remain safe, communicating with employee owners will become even more important—and more challenging.
ESOP Association, COVID-19
If you are like me, much of the last three months has been spent thinking about how to best navigate your business, your job, and your family through the COVID-19 crisis that continues to grip the world with uncertainty and consequence. If it has been said once, it has been said a million times—these are difficult and challenging times, to be sure. But they do not need to be without direction or, even, hopefulness for the future.
The emotional toll that the COVID-19 pandemic is having on Americans is becoming increasingly and alarmingly clear. New information suggests that ESOP companies may want to train an especially keen eye on the well-being of their employee owners.
An agreement between Wilmington Trust and the DOL pays funds to ESOPs and includes costs for penalties and legal fees.
