What are Employee-Owned (ESOP) Companies

and What Do They Require of Their Board Members?

Friday, December 3, 2021

Networking: 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

Presentation, Lunch and Livestream: 12:00 p.m. to 1:15 p.m.


TEMPO Madison's Project REACH initiative is offering a training on December 3 to help members interested in serving on business boards get connected to the more than 150 employee-owned companies in the state. This unique ownership structure gives employees a stake in the companies where they work while providing financial benefits to owners. Wisconsin ESOP companies include:

  • Steinhafels
  • Woodman's 
  • Robert W. Baird & Co. 

This presentation will describe Employee-Owned (ESOP) companies generally and, more specifically, what board candidates need to know about ESOPs to be selected and effective.  Participants will receive a 1-page tool used by ESOP Boards and their representatives to evaluate board candidates. 

We encourage you to review some of the videos here before attending the presentation.

The registration fee of $40 includes lunch at the Madison Club where attendees will be able to choose between two seasonal salads (the Wisconsin Apple and the Classic Chicken Caesar). 

In-person registration deadline: Friday, November 26.
