katie-and-tabitha-esop-confOctober is National Employee Owner month! Woo-hoo! We kicked off the month by sending two of our fantastic employee owners, Katie Leary and Tabitha King to the ESOP Association Conference in Tahoe.

Tabitha and Katie came back from the conference filled with ideas and employee-owner enthusiasm. Here are some of their highlights from the conference:

  • Being around people who were super enthusiastic about engaging their employees and fostering the ownership mindset
  • Learning more about how an ESOP can benefit the company and individual employees
  • Getting lots of ideas for fun ESOP events and ways to engage employees in what it means to be an employee owner
  • Seeing other companies’ displays of how they celebrate their employees
  • Nerding out with fellow SF bay area ESOP members like Recology
  • Playing beginner’s poker and not knowing how to bluff
  • Getting a glowing review of Zachary’s pizza from Jackson Hardware CEO and ESOP Conference president Matthew Olson
