Employee Stock Ownership Plan

Return on Assets

ESOP companies have 25% higher job growth over a 10-year period

Working for an ESOP company provides more benefits than just a retirement account. Employee ownership brings economic power — take RESPEC’s 50-year history and successful growth record as proof.
We are proud to retain employees through full vesting and beyond. When an employee reaches full vesting in the ESOP, we celebrate the milestone with a symbolic vest. Our pride of ownership is shared by each employee and acts as a continual reminder that we work together and for each other.
"As an employee owner, I know that our efforts benefit me and those around me. I feel a deep satisfaction knowing that what I am doing is building a future for my team, not an outside stakeholder."
Eric Krantz, Project Engineer
"Our ESOP is a great example of RESPEC's passion, accountability, care and teamwork. My pride of ownership is demonstrated through my dedication to my work, and RESPEC invests the profits from my hard work back in me."
Amy Hasvold, Strategic Programs Manager
"Companies are forced to balance the interests of their employees and their shareholders in tandem. Those interests don't always align. As an employee owner, I can be confident those interests are one and the same."
David Hoisington, Project Engineer
