ESOP Association Members Make Fortune’s 2013 100 Best Companies to Work For

Congratulations go out to four members of The ESOP Association that have been named to Fortune’s list of the 100 Best Companies to Work For:

Burns & McDonnell Engineers-Architects, Kansas City, MO

W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc., Newark, DE

Publix Super Markets, Inc., Lakeland, FL

TDIndustries, Inc., Dallas, TX

“ESOP companies create great place to work. Congratulations to our members,” said J. Michael Keeling, ESOP Association president. “An Employee Ownership Foundation survey conducted in 2012 showed that 93.3% of survey respondents reported that creating employee ownership through an ESOP was ‘a good business decision that has helped the company.’ In addition, 76% of respondents indicated the ESOP positively affected the overall productivity of the employees. It would be a shame if the Congressional bipartisan support for our modest national policy encouraging employee ownership was not enhanced as Congress looks for a ‘common’ ground policy encouraging U.S. based jobs.”
