Developing a Community Volunteer Network (Clark Insurance, Junior Achievement)
Younger generations are taking into consideration how a business gives back to their community before they work with them or for them. How can you leverage your ESOP culture to promote and market volunteerism in your community? As a company how do you also maximize these volunteer opportunities to provide leadership development training to your employees? Click here to view a video by Junior Achievement.
Safety in the Workplace (Steel-Pro, ABM Mechanical)
Are you committed to safety in the workplace? ESOP culture and safety go hand in hand, how do you promote and incentivize coworkers to stay safe at work and pursue a healthy lifestyle? Hear from companies that recently received the 2019 MEMIC Safety Award.

Onboarding to the ESOP (Maine Drilling and Blasting, Moody’s Collision Centers)
Have you ever felt your excitement towards the ESOP is overwhelming to new coworkers? Do you struggle with the best way to communicate the benefits without getting in to the weeds? This class is for you, see what companies are doing and hear why it works!
ESOP 201 (Spinnaker Trust, Johnson & Jordan, Maselan & Jones, Atlantic Management)
Do you wonder what pitfalls are out there and what you should avoid? Seasoned ESOP companies explore what didn’t work for them to help prevent new ESOP companies from making the same mistakes!
12:10pm – 1:00pm Lunch (networking)
1:05pm – 2:20pm Session III
Nifty 50 (Clark Insurance, Systems Engineering, Daigle Oil)
Now that we are an ESOP, what is different? This will be a fast-paced panel of ESOP companies at various stages in their lifecycle listing their top 50 ideas for employee engagement, ownership culture and ESOP communications. This will provide you with plenty of ideas to bring back to your company!
Internal Training Programs (Cianbro, Sebago Technics)
Training programs offer employers and employees advantages that are not found when you send an employee to an external training program or seminar. Training transfer occurs more naturally and employees cement learning through training other employees. Learn how your company can incorporate these positive programs and utilize them to improve culture.
