Happy Employee Ownership Month!
Last April, Brent Nussbaum announced that Nussbaum Transportation began transitioning to an employee-owned company. Now, as employee-owners, we’ve been tasked with carrying on the mission, values, heritage, and success that the Nussbaum family has established.
Becoming an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) company is a long-term benefit for our employees and can have a significant influence on our retirement (with no personal financial investment!).
“With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility”
We have great power in influencing the future success of our company.
We make hundreds of decisions each day – some small, some big. Think about all those decisions multiplied by nearly 500 employees and added together over the course of a day, a month, and a year. The impact is like compound interest.
And the potential for a good return is enormous!
You Make the Difference
Check out this little phrase with a big meaning… “Own it.” We can impact Nussbaum individually by “owning it” in our daily duties. Here’s how:
- Take pride in your work, and serve our customers well
- Take care of your equipment, operate efficiently, and implement good driving habits
- Look for opportunities to grow, and take personal responsibility for making our company stronger
Take some time to think about how you can “Own it.” Got an idea of what that looks like?
Great - now let's put it into action!
