The benefits of being 100% Employee-Owned

In an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) model, the good of the business reflects the good of each individual employee due to a shared stake. This ultimately creates a “win together, lose together” mentality that emphasizes collaboration and teamwork, tenets that not only improve morale and company culture but also have a tangible effect on company performance.

With the long-term incentive and wealth opportunity that an ESOP provides, employees are more likely to work harder in the best interest of the business. The benefits of working within an ESOP are best reaped the longer you’re with a company, which ultimately leads to lower turnover rates, higher company loyalty, and increased trust within the business.

Because each employee has a degree of ownership within the business, the inner workings of a company’s cash flow and other financials are readily shared within PFSbrands. This Open Book Leadership model creates much less distance between leadership and employees, which offers a level playing field to each individual within the company to be successful and know how they are impacting the business.

Overall, ESOPs are cost-free, culture-focused, and unique (accounting for less than 1% of companies in the USA, according to the National Center for Employee Ownership). All of these elements make working for an ESOP highly appealing to new hires.

Employees also pay no tax on the accumulation of shares in their ESOP accounts. Additionally, upon retirement, diversification, or end of employment, they can roll over their distributions to an IRA or another qualified retirement plan. PFSbrands feature an ESOP plan in addition to, not in replacement of a 401(k).
