R&K Solutions, a leading provider of facilities management software and services, was recognized as the Mid-Atlantic ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) Company of the Year at the combined Spring conference for the Mid-Atlantic and Carolinas chapters of the ESOP Association. To determine the winner for this award, nominated companies are evaluated on their ability to demonstrate achievements in three areas: maximizing their ESOP's value to employees, making employees feel and think like owners, and actively participating in the ESOP Association.
As a 100% employee owned company, the award reflects a team effort, a sentiment clearly expressed in the response of R&K Solutions' ESOP Committee Chair, Jim McGuire:
"This is a tribute to the hard work of the ESOP Communication Committee members—Arthur Levesque, Bindu Reddy, Jackie Anders, Nate Sykes, Suzy Long, and Roy Champagne—but, more importantly, this is a reflection of the combined contribution of everyone in the company. You do the daily work. You support our events. You made us look good to our peers. Thank you all very much!"
Revealing dedication to a strong employee ownership culture, R&K Solutions' nomination included such achievements as establishing an ESOP Communications Committee, hosting an annual workshop, regularly publishing an eight to ten page employee newsletter with trivia contests, conducting a yearly employee survey to solicit feedback on company operations and practices, and briefing the company Board of Directors on ESOP Committee initiatives, to name a few.
