We don’t just work for Stone, we own the company. In 2016, Stone Environmental transitioned its ownership and became 100% employee owned through the Stone Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). The ESOP is a retirement plan for all employees in which the company makes contributions allowing shares of company stock to be allocated to employees. Upon cessation of employment the ESOP repurchases those shares at fair market value allowing the employee to share in the growth in value of the company while they were contributing to its success.
Employee-ownership ties each of us to our company values. This assures all our employees think like owners - we are all focused on the success of our projects and our clients’ satisfaction with the knowledge that we will share in that success.
