ASU Group is celebrating National ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) Month this October by honoring their Employee-Owners with special events, including ESOP contests with prizes.
Says Debra Claeys, CEO “We are extremely grateful to our Employee-Owners for the important role each of them plays in the success of the company. Their hard work, commitment and motivation to provide great service to our clients is what makes ASU special.”
There are approximately 10,000 ESOPs in place in the U.S., covering 10.3 million employees (approximately 10% of the private sector workforce). ASU ‘s ESOP was formed in 1981 and the company became 100% Employee-Owned in 1996.
Employee Ownership Month is an opportunity for ESOP companies across the nation to educate employee owners and the public about the undeniable benefits of employee ownership for employees, their companies, the communities they are a part of, and the nation.
