Employee Stock Ownership Plan
In 1993, Acadian instituted an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), giving employees the opportunity to own private stock in the company. Acadian sets up a trust fund for qualifying employees and contributes new shares of its own stock or cash to buy existing shares. Acadian employees currently own 80% of the company stock.
A key benefit of this plan is that our employees truly are owners, and therefore are more invested in the work they do. When employees have a sense of pride and ownership in the company, they strengthen its foundation and promote continued growth.
The National ESOP Association and its Southwest Chapter have bestowed many awards upon our ESOP committee, employee-owners, and our ESOP communications efforts.
