ABOUT WILEY|WILSON’S EMPLOYEE STOCK OWNERSHIP AND SAVINGS
An Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is an employee benefit plan that provides employees with a beneficial, ownership stake in the company. It offers employee-owners — those directly responsible for the company’s success — another way to accumulate funds for retirement. Each year, shares may be awarded into qualifying employee-owners’ accounts. These shares are bought back by the company from the employee-owners when they retire or leave the company. Ownership begins after one year of service and you are automatically enrolled.
The success of the company depends on the teamwork and positive attitudes of all employees. At every level of job responsibility, the efforts and commitment of all employees have created the success so far achieved and will help guarantee that the company remains successful.
WHAT IS THE BENEFIT OF JOINING AN EMPLOYEE-OWNED COMPANY LIKE WILEY|WILSON?
An employee-owned company offers benefits that other, traditionally owned companies do not. The individual benefits you get from the Wiley|Wilson ESOP will depend on your personal productivity and your length of employment with the company. The longer you remain with Wiley|Wilson the more you will benefit from the ESOP.
The ownership experience shapes the firm’s culture and creates an environment of mutual respect, professionalism, and support. Everyone who works at Wiley|Wilson does so with the mindset of an owner and with a personal, vested interest in the firm’s success.
