We are a 100% Employee-Owned company.
New Energy Works operates on the triple bottom line—a simple belief that people, planet, and profit work together to ensure a better future. Our coworkers are more than just employees, they’re a critical part of what makes our company successful. Accordingly, we offer our teams flexibility, competitive compensation, and a comprehensive benefits package that includes the largest long-term wealth-building tool an employer can provide—an ESOP (or Employee Stock Ownership Plan)
Every individual coworker has an ownership mentality because we are 100% Employee-Owned through our ESOP. Being Employee-Owned also means all coworkers have a directly vested interest in the profitability of the company, the cultural values we represent, and the quality work we do. Our internal ESOP Communications Committee represents the various divisions and voices with our company to build a culture of connectivity, collaboration, and engagement.
Our ESOP Board of Directors helps guide our company towards the future while overseeing adherence to the boundaries set by law and regulation for ESOP operation.

An ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan) is an employee benefit plan that enables coworkers as a group to own interest in part, or all, of a business in the form of shares of stock. It is also a type of Trust that acts as a retirement plan, similar to a 401K, by investing in company stock and holding its assets in the Trust for employee-owners, at no cost to those employee-owners, that also increases employee retention long term.
