Why You Should Work for an ESOP Staffing Firm

 In Career Advancement, Job Search Tips and Tricks

Who doesn’t need a little more financial security? Many people build savings accounts and retirement funds, or purchase stocks and bonds to plan for their financial future. Another unique financial resource offered by some employers is an ESOP, or Employee Stock Ownership Plan. This benefit is offered to employees and allows you to own shares of stock in the company you work for. You receive stock shares as part of your employee benefits package, just as you would receive medical or dental insurance, or 401(k) retirement options.

How does an ESOP help you?

Like any other stocks or financial investments, ESOP shares provide you with added financial security. Your employer sets up a special trust fund for you and either contributes cash you can use to buy company shares, or purchases shares on your behalf. ESOP shares also have an added advantage. If your employer is doing well, your ESOP stock is also doing well. In this way, you have a unique way to impact the value of your stock by working hard and helping your employer succeed.

Most employers will hold your ESOP shares for you for safety and growth. When you retire or are eligible to receive the benefits (such as going on approved social security disability or through death), the ESOP benefits are available to cash in.
