Cisco-Eagle Employee Owners

ESOP RECORD

In the early spring of 2015, Cisco-Eagle assembled some special work teams to complete a session of Process Improvement Training. Five employee-owners were designated to participate on the ESOP process improvement training. During six sessions, our team independently identified the need for a ‘re-branding’ of the company ESOP.

The team decided to adopt a theme to celebrate the financial upswing Cisco-Eagle has enjoyed over recent years: Rockin’ to Retirement—symbolic of the economic postwar boom America enjoyed during the 1950s—was selected to send the message that happy days are, indeed, here again. The theme logo was prominently displayed on each ESOP communication shared with employee-owners in emails, monthly company newsletter, monthly EAC newsletter, on company bulletin boards and in company meetings.

November 11, 2015

Benny Bruner and Congressman Pete SessionsDallas, TX, October 30, 2015–The Southwest Chapter of the ESOP Association celebrated Employee-Ownership Month in the DFW Area on October 30 with its 8th Annual BBQ Cook-off hosted by Vermeer Texas-Louisiana. Congressman and ESOP advocate Pete Sessions of Texas was on hand as a guest judge. A few raindrops didn’t stop a great crowd from turning out to try some tasty BBQ chicken, ribs and brisket. Cisco-Eagle’s own Benny Bruner, took 2nd place with his mouthwatering brisket.

Bruner, an ace service technician from our Field Operations division, enjoys being an employee owner by watching how his decisions affect all of Cisco-Eagle. He remarked that “it’s not just a job”.

Donny Goforth, Manager of Cisco-Eagle’s service division, observed that Benny cares for his customers just the same way his cares for his brisket. Goforth acknowledged that “Benny is always eager to please and concerned each customer is happy.”

He also smokes a mean brisket!

Cisco-Eagle believes that empowered, fully-invested employees who own a stake in their company is the best business approach. It allows us to provide superior customer service and engagement. This award is not selected by senior management — it is awarded directly by a committee of employees based on a nomination process that includes all employees. It is an award to one employee from his or her peers.

On March 7, Cisco-Eagle’s ESOP committee members were presented this award at the association’s Spring Conference & Awards Dinner.
