WHY CHOOSE EMPLOYEE-OWNED?
At ViaSun, we invest in our people and their careers. By joining our team, you become a voice in the future and success of ViaSun.
In 2019, ViaSun saw the need to become more and joined the Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP). By becoming 100% employee-owned company, ViaSun created the opportunity for employees to become part of the future of ViaSun while benefiting from company stock options at no cost to them.
BENEFITS OF EMPLOYEE OWNERSHIP
Being an employee-owner and sharing success is what makes employee-ownership so special. Each employee-owner has his/her own voice in their future here. Over a 10-year period, employee-owned companies have 25% higher job growth than non-ESOP companies (NCEO). Having voice gives our employee-owners pride in their work.
ESOPs matter the most in times like today. The median tenure for an ESOP participant is 46% greater than a non-employee owner (National Longitudinal Survey Data). Employee-owners are also 4x less likely to be laid off during the recent recession. ESOPs are a place employee-owners want to stay.
Employee-owned companies inspire a culture of ownership and quality. Unlike non-employee-owned companies, ViaSun strives to create a place where employee-owners feel highly motivated, appreciated, and seen, resulting in better quality across the board.
Did you know ESOP companies have 2.5X greater retirement accounts than non-ESOPs? Being part of an employee-owned company is an opportunity to pursue a path to prosperity and upward mobility. Growth is a key part to employee-ownership and ViaSun supports and encourages it.
People part of employee-owned companies are inspired to work together and problem solve. At ViaSun, we maintain a purpose-driven attitude towards everything and that shows. Our employee-owners have a sense of purpose in what they do, and that directly translates to their hard work.
Employee-owned companies are set up for a long-term legacy, allowing the business to thrive far beyond a CEO or owner retiring. By compiling all the aforementioned qualities, employee-owned companies experience fewer changes in annual employment. Employee-owned companies with lower turnover and an increase in stability mean more consistency for clients and employee-owners.
