Gardner’s Supply Wins 2016 Employee Ownership Month Poster Contest

Washington, DC—At its Annual Conference here The ESOP Association announced that Gardner’s Supply of Burlington, VT, has won the annual Employee Ownership Month Contest.

“This year’s poster excels at capturing the essence of employee ownership as a means of helping everyone in an organization achieve a new perspective—one that focuses on the big picture and looks to the horizon to attain the business’ best long term outcome,” said J. Michael Keeling, President of The ESOP Association.

The winning entry in each year’s contest highlights the spirit of employee ownership, which is celebrated during Employee Ownership Month in October. The poster will be available on The ESOP Association website in the late summer.
