During Ownership Appreciation Week, we recognize all employees (owners) for the contributions they make to MSA, and to reinforce our Purpose. MSA’s Purpose is to “enable people to positively impact the lives of others.” We live our purpose through our employees, families and friends, clients and communities.
MSA operates as a closely-held corporation, and our employees own 100% of the stock through the Employee Stock Ownership and Savings Plan (ESOP). During Ownership Appreciation Week, we spotlight each owner and offer our thanks and appreciation for their time with us. This year we will celebrate 12 work anniversaries for individuals who have worked at our firm for 20-35 years!
MSA’s average tenure with the organization is 12 years. This compares to the industry average tenure of 5.5 years, reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. At MSA, we see individuals who stay with the firm for 35, 40 and even 45 years. We are proud to say this long-term tenure occurs annually.
If you are looking for a great place to work, contact us to learn more. We welcome the opportunity to discuss our favorable company culture. Who knows, maybe one day you will receive a 35-year service award!
