What is the value of working with an Employee-Owned integrator?

Typically when I explain to someone that I work for an employee-owned company, it’s not immediately understood what that means. To clarify, VIcom is an ESOP (we have an Employee Stock Ownership Plan) and we’re one of the few in our industry that is 100% employee-owned.

Employee-owned essentially means that our company’s stock is allocated through shares among employees, as opposed to having a single person or entity as the majority shareholder of our stock.

How employees receive shares or how our worth is determined is a separate conversation, instead, I’d like to discuss the value VIcom’s status as an ESOP brings to the clients we do business with.

As a VIcom Employee, the word that comes to my mind when I consider employee ownership is empowerment. If every employee has a real stake in the success of our company, that resonates through every decision and interaction that occurs through our day-to-day experience at work.

We’ve all had a buying experience with a person who does not enjoy their job. Whether it was a negative attitude, a rude disposition or they just didn’t want to be working there – a lack of pride or purpose can result in a truly poor experience for a consumer. On the flip side, if the employee that you’re interacting with has actual equity in the success and wellbeing of the company they represent, that creates empowerment, personal responsibility, and ideally an overall drive for success that is far more likely to produce a positive and effective experience for a client.

Ownership is essential to the culture here at VIcom, so much that it’s the first on the list of our core values. When you work with VIcom, you’re working with employee-owners that strive for the best for your company and ours alike. This is a primary reason why I’m proud to be an employee-owner and VIcom is proud to be an employee-owned company.
