EEA Joins the Rank of “Certified Employee-Owned” Companies

EEA is very excited to share that the business is now Certified Employee-Owned -- a certification program for employee owned businesses. 

“Certified Employee-Owned exists to build an employee-owned economy. Through our certification, we are creating national recognition for EO and publicizing the benefits that employee-owned companies offer to working people, customers, and local communities,” their website states.

The program focuses on best practices, recruiting, hiring, branding, and most importantly consumer awareness.

“We place a lot of value and importance on our status as an Employee Owned company, and achieving this certification is another way to bring attention to this unique aspect of our firm,” says Todd Schmitt, CEO of EEA Consulting Engineers.  “Being Employee Owned is central to our culture and helps create wealth for the whole team.  We feel that this sets us apart in the AEC industry.”

“We are building a future where employee-owned companies are a large portion of the economy – where the benefits of employee ownership are widely recognized, and EO is seen as one of the defining aspects of a great business,” their website says. “In this future, employee-owned companies will be the employer of choice for millions of job seekers, and being employee-owned will be a major differentiator with clients and consumers. Employee-owned will be synonymous with high quality, great customer service, and well-paying, stable jobs.”

Employee owned businesses are rooted in local communities, create strong local economies, create wealth for working people, and care deeply for their customers.
