Franklin Building Supply has been a 100% employee-owned company
for more than one year. As a relatively young ownership culture, we joined Certified EO to help us accelerate the awareness of our unique and valuable ownership structure to our owners and future owners across the company.
Rick LierzCEO Franklin Building Supply
As one of the largest ESOP companies in the nation,
WinCo Foods believes wholeheartedly in the benefits of employee ownership and we are 100% behind Certified EO and its mission. We hope our participation as a founding member of the organization will not only set an example for other ESOP companies, but also encourage others who are considering becoming employee-owned to follow the example of all the founding members and provide their employees an ownership stake in their company.
Hank F.SVP of Retail Operations, North Region
Certified EO has been a great resource and support system
to the Employee-Ownership Committee of Pioneer Technical Services, Inc. Their sample toolkit worksheets and webinars have been tremendously helpful in strengthening our Employee-Ownership culture from internal communications, recruiting, social media, and marketing. We are proud to display the Certified 100% Employee-Owned mark with the Pioneer Technical Services, Inc. logo.

Our employee and recruitment communications
wouldn’t be what they are without the content from Certified EO. They are constantly putting out new information and the look of it is fresh and appealing. We are grateful for all of the help they have given us in the past two years. Our transition to an ESOP and communicating about it would have been much more difficult without their support. It is great to work with a responsive partner like Certified EO.
