New Energy Works: 100% Employee Owned

 

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 part of what makes our company successful.

At New Energy Works every individual has an ownership mentality, because we are 100% Employee-Owned as an ESOP (Employee Stock Ownership Plan). Being Employee-Owned means every employee has a vested interest in the profitability of the company, the cultural values we represent, and the quality work we do.

Accordingly, we offer our team flexibility, competitive compensation, and a comprehensive benefits package that includes the largest wealth building tool an employer can provide—an employee stock ownership plan.

100% Employee-Owned

In 2018 we started our transition from single ownership of our founder Jonathan Orpin, and in 2022 became a 100% employee-owned company as an ESOP, one of about 8,000 ESOP businesses in the country.

An ESOP (or 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.

Having long operated on the triple bottom line—a simple belief that people, planet, and profit work together to ensure a better future, the New Energy Works transition to employee-ownership is intended to ensure the environmental and social commitments the business was founded on 30+ years ago continue far into the future.
