Staffed by the Ohio Employee Ownership Center, Kent State University
The Employee Owner Retreat is a three-day, off-site training seminar staffed by the Ohio Employee Ownership Center, where non-managerial employee owners learn from and interact with their peers from other ESOP companies. In small groups, structured exercises, and informal discussions, employee owners develop new skills and a new perspective on employee ownership at their respective companies.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
While any employee owner is welcome, the program is designed primarily to give hourly and salaried non-managerial employees an opportunity to learn with and from their peers. Typically, attendees come from outstanding ESOP companies, both service and manufacturing, where developing a culture of ownership is considered an important aspect of corporate success. Participants are often ESOP champions, members of the board of directors, ESOP committees, problem solving teams, or company trainers, and informal non-managerial leaders. Sending three to six employees raises the effectiveness in bringing the learning back.
