with employee ownership
Preserve your legacy
Why is employee ownership a great option?
The perfect buyer for your company may be the ones you work with every day, and the perfect employee engagement strategy might be to give them a stake in your business’s future.
Employee-owned businesses have:
- Lower turnover: Workers at employee-owned businesses have 46% longer job tenure than their peers in firms that are not employee-owned*
Higher productivity: Employee-owned enterprises reported productivity levels that were 9–19% higher than levels in traditionally structured similar businesses*
Higher profits: Employee-owned firms have an average profit margin almost 8.5% higher than the average private firm*
Greater resilience: In 2020, during COVID business shut downs, employee-owned companies were less than half as likely to lay off employees and 6x more likely to say they expected to make a full recovery*

Explore your options
As you explore your succession options, it’s important to examine all of your choices. While selling your business on the market might seem like the best choice, did you know that the vast majority of businesses put on the market don’t sell?

The myths and the reality
The truth is that many business owners are already enjoying the benefits of employee ownership as a succession plan that allows them to keep their legacy intact while retiring comfortably.
Meet Craig Danley
“Our culture is about how to create ownership, how to create a culture of organization and community that revolves around relationships and people, and how to inspire people to perform not for themselves but to perform for the organization as a whole. We believe this culture produces good outcomes for the city, the county and the state. It’s in every decision we make. It’s not about me, it’s about we. I think that’s what really sets us apart.”
