Last week, The ESOP Association announced the winners of the Annual Awards for Communications Excellence (AACE) at a special event held during the Employee Owned 2021 conference in Las Vegas.
The AACE Awards are among the most coveted in the ESOP community, and honor excellence in communicating the value of employee-owned companies as well as ESOPs in general to employees, communities, the media and all other stakeholders.
To recognize the importance of communications during the unprecedented circumstances created during the COVID-19 pandemic, the ESOP Association moved this year’s awards to their annual Employee-Owned conference. The conference is one of the world’s largest gatherings of ESOP companies and their employee owners, and a showcase for the latest trends and innovations in the ESOP world.

“During these unprecedented times, effectively communicating about ESOPs and employee ownership is more important than ever. This year’s AACE winners demonstrated outstanding creativity and innovation in communicating the value and benefits of ESOPs and set a great example for our entire community,” said Jim Bonham, President and CEO of the ESOP Association.
Congratulations to our employee-owners!
