Employee Owners Make a Difference

Employees at Ulteig take great pride in being part of an employee-owned company. That’s because they know that their contributions to the success of the company benefit not only their clients, but their co-workers and themselves as well. They look at their work and the decisions they make on a day-to-day basis a little bit differently. They connect their work to the value they are creating for each other. When the stock price is announced in the summer of each year, employees are really excited, because they know that they are collectively sharing in the success that they have created.

And, employee owners at Ulteig have a strong voice. They are constantly sharing their opinions through surveys, listening sessions, regular town hall meetings, and other mechanisms. Speaking and being heard are part of our culture, and we are a stronger company because of it!
