OwnersEdge Affiliate Logo
When you join OwnersEdge or one of our affiliate companies, you become part of a unique ownership structure that might be new to you, but it’s sure to get your attention. To clarify, we are not owned by private equity, by a family, by management, or even by a sole owner. We are 100% employee-owned. And we are proud to be employee owners!
It’s not often you can call yourself an employee owner and go to work every day to offer your talents without having to “start your own business.” Although retirement may not always be at the top of your mind, we make sure everyone understands how the Employee Stock Ownership Plan, or better known as an ESOP, is a unique benefit that offers you shares in the company that has proven to gain value over time.,
The ESOP is our “gift” to you for the contributions you make every day when you show up for work and give your all. This is our ESOP Advantage!

How does my ESOP grow?

Our employees’ ESOP accounts grow in TWO ways:

The annual gifted employer contribution – targeting 10-15% of your annual earnings

The change in the OwnersEdge affiliate company consolidated share value


Our Commitment to Diversified Growth

Today we have five affiliate businesses, and our goal is to have ten diversified affiliates over the next few years.  This approach of adding healthy, diversified businesses to the OwnersEdge portfolio, and providing a means for them to continue growing, is our commitment to you as an employee-owner.  Our employee-owners have a vested interest in the success of our affiliates, that can be experienced in our culture and positive work environments.  The collective efforts of you and others on your team have the ability to impact the overall consolidated company performance and share value.

In comparison to a 401(k) return rate of 8%, our ESOP has experienced an average return rate of 19% over the last 10 years!

Pathway to Your American Dream

Statistics show that, on average, the typical employee will have up to 12 jobs throughout their career!  When we hire employee- owners, our goal is to give you every opportunity to stay on a path within our ESOP until you wish to retire.  Whether you are recognized for your technical talents, previous experience, or you excel at people leadership, we build on your strengths and create pathways to help you grow your skill sets and enhance your career. Our hope is that when you retire and look back, you can say that the ESOP Advantage helped you realize Your American Dream.

OwningIt! Award

At OwnersEdge and our affiliate companies, we talk a lot about owning it. Each of our employee-owners has a vested interest in our success, so we consider our work to be more than just a job; we consider it a collective commitment to our purpose, our fellow employee-owners, and to our customers. In other words, we do whatever it takes because we know when our customers succeed, we succeed.

Each year, we recognize one employee-owner from OwnersEdge and each affiliate with our “OwningIt!” award. The nominees and winners of this award are announced during our Annual All-Employee ESOP Meeting, where we also announce the new share value and highlight successes from each affiliate company.

Supporting our ESOP Mission

All employee-owners are welcome to be part of an Employee Ownership Committee that runs activities and events each year around our four missions – ESOP Education, Community Involvement, Well-Being, and Employee Celebrations.  This voluntary committee consists of a chair, past chair, a leader for each mission and ESOP champions. Our entire committee is looked upon as ambassadors for our ESOP and what employee ownership means to all of us!

In addition to our employee-owners giving back to their communities with their day-to-day work efforts, we also strive to connect employee-owners to the community through our volunteer programs –both through company planned events and paid time off each year to volunteer.
