Every year the ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) Association Michigan Chapter presents its distinguished Company of the year award at its annual Lansing Conference. This year, Pleune Service Company was honored to receive the award from the Chapter’s President David Bosch.
In attendance to receive the award were 6 of 7 ESOP Committee Members, Ken Misiewicz (CEO/President), Jill Malone (Trustee and VP of Human Resources – Administration), and Jennifer Murphy (Trustee and CFO). The award is the first for the Organization in its 29th year of becoming an ESOP.
Employee Ownership and Culture is the foundation of Pleune Service Company’s mission statement, value statement, and business plan. An excerpt from the Company’s award submission letter captures the essence of the Organizations focus on its most regarded asset, its people: “Our employee owners make Pleune Service Company what it is today. Staying focused on our core values; Integrity, respect, persistence, quality, teamwork, education, and customer oriented, assist Pleune Service Company in making decisions that benefit our current employee owners and future employee owners. Pleune Service Company strives for engagement. We want our employee owners to feel like they have a voice and they do. We do not have a single owner like most organizations, rather 115 employee owners and we are very proud of that!”
