Understanding Employee Ownership from the HR POV
From the EO Podcast website: “From employee owners and management to professionals working at these organizations – each guest brings their own unique outlook and experience to our ongoing conversation about what makes employee ownership so important and valuable.”
In the first of a series of related podcasts that aired in October 2022, EO Podcast host Bret Keisling is joined by Cirtronics’ Chief Culture Officer, Samantha “Sam” O’Neill. They discuss how employee ownership impacts human resources and management decisions, how Cirtronics engages and motivates, and how EO builds camaraderie, job satisfaction, and wealth.
“I think employees appreciate understanding the why [behind decisions], being heard and being listened to… Here [at an ESOP] it’s even more important to emphasize the why, because at the end of the day it is an employee-owned organization, and employees have stake in the end result of things.”
Our commitment to employee-ownership is central to our culture. We’re a manufacturing company with a human heart, and we truly think you’ll hear that in these podcast episodes.
