Employee Ownership I magine that if every time you dealt with a company in your life—maybe it's the cable company or the electric com- pany or your doctor or dentist—you felt valued, appreciated and treated as if you were the company's only client? Imagine you were dealing directly with the owner of that company every single time you worked with them, and that your experience was consistently rich and rewarding—a true royal treatment. Think about how many people you would tell about your positive experiences and how much you would brag about this company to your friends and family. That's the kind of experience one has when employees have an attitude of ownership. Employee-owned companies have been proven to have attributes that any ambitious company would value highly, and which translate into benefits for both the companies themselves and their employees. In fact, Rutgers University researchers point out the following statistics in their recent study on employee-owned companies: • Employee commitment and cooperation was strong in companies with significant employee ownership and highest in those with majority employee ownership. • There was lower voluntary employee turnover in employee-owned companies. • Employee ownership helps the best firms perform better. An ownership culture is something we're proud to have here at Davey. In this issue of The MyDavey Bulletin, we are kicking off an employee ownership special section (see page 28) where we highlight all of the possibilities employees have to get involved, as well as provide case studies highlighting employee ownership success stories. Ownership is at the heart of Davey; it's the reason many employees think of Davey as not only a place to work but also a business to call their own. It's MyDavey. Feel free to share your employee ownership stories with us at bulletin@davey.com.
