Every October, The ESOP Association and its member companies celebrate Employee-Ownership Month. This is a celebration of the spirit of employee-ownership. It is an invaluable opportunity for Technomics to further educate its employee-owners about the benefits of having equity (a stake) in the company.
It’s also a great time to reflect on our accomplishments, the impact they have had had on our company, and what continues to be possible in the future for all of us.
EO Month Breakfast Meet & Greet
Employee-Ownership month kicked off on Friday, October 1st with a delicious, catered breakfast for the entire office. Food options included Chef-prepared omelets, bacon & turkey sausage, fruit, and drinks including juices and coffee. With Technomics rapidly growing and always attracting new talent, the event served as a great opportunity to make new connections. A Q&A panel discussion followed which detailed upcoming events during the month and answered questions Technomicians had about the company’s Employee Stock Ownership program: one of the highlights of being an Employee-Owner.
On October 2nd, Technomics held its annual Fall Picnic that included good food, yard games, and many dogs! Fort Hunt Park in Alexandria was a perfect location for this family-friendly event, and the weather turned out to be beautiful. Employees, friends, and family celebrated the start of employee-ownership month with activities like corn hole, Frisbee, face painting, and caricature artists.
Technomics served a delicious barbeque buffet and cake to fuel the attendees throughout the games and gathering. This year, coming off a year and a half of no large group gatherings due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Technomics wanted to do things a little different this year, and include a Technomics first, a Cigar Bar.
In addition to the good food, friends, and family, Technomics also took the time to recognize Jim York for his accomplishments during his employment at Technomics. A big congratulations and thank you to Jim on his retirement!
