Why Become Part of Austin’s ESOP?

Unlike other companies that may be privately or publicly-held, Austin is 100% owned by our employees. It’s a source of pride for every one of our 6,000+ employee-owners that we have a vested interest in the day-to-day success of our company. We share in Austin’s growth and profitability, and are accountable to ourselves for doing everything it takes to serve our customers with excellence and to make Austin the best it can be. After all, We Own It.

Ownership benefits everyone!

Austin’s employee-ownership structure is called an Employee Stock Ownership Program, or ESOP. Every employee-owner is enrolled automatically after one year of service, and the company then begins making annual contributions to each employee-owner’s account. Those that also participate in Austin’s 401k plan with a matching contribution from the company have an incredible opportunity to accrue significant savings!

Eight great ESOP benefits:

  • Provides 9,000+ past and present Austin employee-owners with ESOP benefits
  • Prompts all to think AND act like owners
  • Creates an environment of caring about customers and fellow employee-owners
  • Ensures an equal stake - nobody owns more than 1% of Austin
  • Creates job satisfaction for all and an atmosphere of teamwork
  • Increases engagement in all that we do
  • Creates job security for all employee-owners
  • Generates on average for ESOP participants more than 2.5 times the retirement funds than that of non-ESOP employees
