VISTA Technology Services, Inc. (VISTAtsi), has been selected by the ESOP Association as the runner up of the 2011 Category 7, Special Events and Promotions Annual Award for Communications Excellence (AACE). The AACE Awards are sponsored each year by the Association to recognize the outstanding communications and educational programs of its members. The awards are presented each May at the Association’s Annual Conference in Washington DC to companies who have excelled in communicating the ESOP (employee stock ownership plan) and its meaning to company’s employees.
VISTAtsi is a Veteran-owned/employee-owned small business with offices in Herndon, Virginia and San Antonio, Texas and became an ESOP on January 1, 2007. Currently, VISTAtsi has 41 employees and 63 active ESOP participants.
“We are very proud to have received this wonderful recognition from The ESOP Association,” commented Terry Hill, CFO, VISTAtsi. “The unique events and activities that took place during ESOP month provided each and every Stakeholder of VISTAtsi the opportunity to learn even more about our company and to reflect on the true significance of being an ESOP... we also managed to have a good time in the process.”
AACE Award winners are chosen by a panel of five judges made up of both management and non-management employee owners, each of whom has demonstrated active experience and interest in the field of ESOPs and employee ownership communications. Awards are based on: overall quality and quantity of employee owner education, contributions of employee owners, integration of the ESOP into company culture, frequency of ownership communications, involvement and/or response of employee owners, encouragement of ownership attitudes, clear explanations, creative ideas, graphic design and technical quality.
The core cause of The ESOP Association is the belief that employee ownership will improve American competitiveness, increase productivity through greater employee participation and strengthen our enterprise economy.
