The Greater Washington Center for Employee Ownership (GWCEO) and the Employee Ownership Expansion Network (EOX) invite you to join us for a conversation exploring how Harkins Builders became 100% employee-owned through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).

Kathy Humm is the Director of Human Resources at Harkins Builders and will share how employee ownership drives business growth and helped build an incredible work culture. She’ll discuss the effect of the employee ownership transition on the lives of Harkins 200+ employees, the communities they live in, and their clients. Business owners and community leaders who attend this session will leave with a better understanding of the ESOP model.

At this event, you can expect to learn how employee ownership:

  • Drives business growth
  • Impacts the lives of Harkins 200+ employees and communities
  • Builds incredible work cultures for worker-owners
Steve Storkan, the Executive Director of EOX and GWCEO Advisory Council Member, will provide opening remarks. The conversation will be moderated by Keith Apton, the Managing Director of the Capital ESOP Group UBS. Keith will also provide insight into the technical breakdown of the ESOP conversation process.
