Pennsylvania/Delaware Chapter ESOP Association Spring Conference

March 28, 2019 - March 28, 2019

State College, PA

Matt Hancock, Praxis Consulting Group; Mike Shuey, Restek; Mary Fair, Murray Securus; Steve Washkalavitch, The Graham Companies

Instead of listening to a presentation about ESOP Committees, this semi-structured and participant-driven workshop will harness the wisdom of the group. Employee-owners on ESOP Committees or interested in creating one will break out into small groups, identify common challenges and themes and design their own, mini-workshops to help solve the problems most important to them.

Rapid Engagement
Jon Sweigart, Praxis Consulting Group

Research shows that employee-ownership, when combined with employee engagement, gives employee-owned companies competitive advantage. This interactive presentation explores three conditions (motivation, opportunity and skills) for engagement and the everyday practices that bring them alive at work.

Demystifying Financial Statements
Matt Hancock, Praxis Consulting Group; Michael Wolfe, Trout, Ebersole & Groff, LLP; June Firestone, Crescent Industries, Inc.

ESOPs are most effective when every employee thinks like an owner. Being able to read and understand the company’s financial statements is key to thinking, and acting, like an owner. In this fun and interactive session we will help participants understand basic financial statements and connect how their work affects the company’s finances and how that is eventually reflected in the share price. Everyone can learn to read a financial statement if shown how. That is what we will do in this session.
