Our Benefits for You and Your Family

Employee Stock Ownership Plan logo

You’re Not an Employee — You’re an Owner!

In 1993, Acadian instituted an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), giving eligible employees the opportunity to own private shares in the company. Through this structure, employees own the company, giving us a sense of pride and a stronger investment in our work.

Acadian sets up a trust fund for qualifying employees and contributes new shares of its own stock or cash to buy existing shares. Acadian employees currently own 80% of the company stock.

In addition, Acadian offers an exceptional benefits package.
