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 joined the Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP). By becoming a 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
Each employee-owner has a say in their future at ViaSun. Over a 10-year period, employee-owned companies have 25% higher job growth than non-ESOP companies (NCEO). Having a 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. ViaSun supports and encourages growth- a key part of employee-ownership.
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 the CEO or owner retiring. As a result, employee-owned companies experience fewer changes in annual employment. Lower turnover and increased stability mean more consistency for both clients and employee-owners.
