For over 20 years, The ESOP Association and its member companies have been celebrating Employee Ownership Month every October. It is a celebration of the incredible spirit of employee ownership and an opportunity to educate employee owners about the tremendous benefits of employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs).

It is also an opportunity to educate the public, elected officials, and the media as to why employee ownership through ESOPs is good public policy.

Companies celebrate with picnics to honor their employee owners, hold round-table discussions with local public officials and organizations to spread the word about employee ownership, and some hold awards ceremonies to honor outstanding employees.
