Urbana, IA - Clickstop has officially put stock ownership into the hands of its employees. On October 3, 2018, employees of Clickstop celebrated the first transaction within its newly formed ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan).
The ESOP has been created, in part, to allow for its employees to reap the financial benefits of owning a healthy, growing company. “It’s another benefit to provide to our employees, and it can create a more impressive return than a 401K,” states CEO Tim Guenther.
Through the ESOP, eligible employees will receive shares of Clickstop, which has the potential to be quite lucrative given Clickstop’s growth trend.
In addition to the financial benefits, the ESOP was created to complete the ownership experience that their performance expectations have created. Jordan Fischer, a Sales and Services Representative, has worked at Clickstop for six years. He believes that “Clickstop has been successful because the employees want Clickstop to succeed. Our teams and people work hard to create a culture of ownership by holding ourselves to high standards of performance in what we do and how we do it. Through ESOP, that ownership is realized on paper.”
It should come as no surprise that Clickstop has received the awards of Coolest Place to Work in the Corridor and Top Workplace In Iowa. Clickstop employees trust Clickstop. And through ESOP, Clickstop is showing that it trusts its employees.
