Typically, attendees come from outstanding ESOP companies where developing a culture of ownership is considered an important aspect of corporate success.

Webinars

- Wednesday February 22nd, 10am-11am ET - "Launching or Rebooting Your Ownership Communication and Engagement"

Presenter: Kyla Alterman, Workplace Development

Creating a strong culture of ownership can be a challenge. Each of your employee-owners bring their own experiences and perspectives to work with them every day - that includes what they think, or understand, about what it means to be an owner. Getting everyone rowing in the same direction begins with clear and frequent employee communication and engagement. Whether you are a new employee-owned company just starting out, or a mature one hitting the reset button, this session will provide principles and examples of successful communication and engagement to build the foundation of a strong ownership culture - from the bottom-up.
