At EOHI, we acknowledge and respect our differences as well as our combined strengths. We encourage a working environment that supports our values and promotes ownership. We focus on FUEL (Family, University, ESOP & Local Community) programs each year and invest in our next generation of talent each summer through our Campus Ambassador Program.
Our family of companies are part of the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), meaning we are 100% employee owned, allowing for employees to have stock in our company. We move as a team and have the best interest in the growth and success of our customers and company.
“I love getting to interact with employees from all locations and oversee the heartbeat of Hydraquip.” – Bobby Schaible
“Working at SIT has been one of the best things because I am able to learn something new everyday by getting projects that have never been done before.” – Derek Sherwood
“The cool thing about working for GCC is that you don’t have to specialize in just one thing and are constantly expanding your knowledge.” – Nathan Elliot
EOHI is committed to developing talent. Our unique, family-oriented culture promotes a friendly work environment, and we are committed to providing the tools and training needed to help all employees grow professionally and personally. Our rotational internships expose students to a wide variety of departments and provide excellent learning opportunities. We are all owners and work together to achieve high growth goals.
An ESOP is an Employee Stock Ownership Plan, which is a unique retirement program that allows virtually all employees to own stock in the company. When you join EOHI or any of its companies, you automatically begin investing in your future. We are a high growth company committed to training our employee-owners to develop their skills and advance in their careers. You’ll get to see this value each year on your ESOP certificate, which is generally distributed in June of each year.
Not all ESOPs are created equally. In other ESOPs, employees may only own 30% or 70% of the company. At EOHI, we are very proud to be 100% employee owned.
The journey began in 1965 when the founder, Frank Smith, began profit sharing. Mr. Smith knew employees were responsible for the success of the company and were its greatest asset. In 1985, Mr. Smith made the decision to retire and sell the company to the employees and after some time we became 100% employee owned.
We believe our culture of employee ownership is the main reason for our success. Besides the monetary benefits of an ESOP, the company culture and workplace environment is improved in many ways. As an employee owner, the employees share directly in the successes of the company which creates a culture of hard work, accountability, and integrity. We also take the opportunity throughout the year to celebrate our employee ownership, including a National Employee Ownership Month recognized in October.
