Virtual "Lunch N Learn" – Hot Topics for 12/31/20 ESOP Valuations

Wednesday March 10, 2021
12 noon- 12:30 pm
Presented by Brian Bornino, GBQ

It's that time of year again - as you prepare for your annual valuation, what should you expect? What are the impacts of abnormal performance, whether good or bad? What if your company has not seen much difference in performance, will Covid still have an impact? How will a PPP loan (and any forgiveness) impact your number? What are the most appropriate (and least appropriate) valuation methods during these uncertain times?  Should the COVID crisis create volatility in my ESOP valuation? This and more will be covered in our 30 minute virtual lunch n learn session.

Culture and Communication

The research is extensive, and increasingly without controversy - employee-ownership by itself will not increase employee satisfaction, motivation and performance, it must be combined with an ownership culture that generates value for the company, wealth for employees, and quality of life in our communities. We offer multiple programs throughout the year to help build and maintain an ownership culture.

Upcoming:

Communication Roundtable (stand alone event)

Date: Wednesday, March 24th, 2021

Time: 12pm-1pm
