Event Description:
Most people in Truckee know Mountain Hardware & Sports is Employee Owned – local people, local business. But what does that mean? An ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) is dedicated to the community. It provides business succession opportunities and options. They not only benefit business owners and their associates, but they also invest in the local workforce and in the community. Speaking on the topic will be Anthony Mathews, the director of the Beyster Institute/California Center for Employee Ownership at the Rady School of Management, UC San Diego. Tony has a 30-year-long career as one of the best-known ESOP and employee experts in the country. He has served as a consultant to hundreds of ESOP companies through his positions at some of the most respected consulting and administration firms in the country.
Maybe you’ve heard of B Corps and had no idea what it means. Certified B Corps are purpose-driven for-profit companies that meet the highest standards for social and environmental performance, transparency, and accountability, and are outperforming their conventional peers in terms of employee engagement, community giving, environmental stewardship and profit. Heather Paulsen will be sharing more about what B Corps are, how and why you might consider becoming one, and how Truckee could become a B Corp destination. “In my view, it’s a powerful framework for building an inclusive economy that works better for everyone,” said Paulsen.
