Employee Stock Ownership Plan

100% accountable and invested across the board

People walk around Harris like they own the place—because they do.

On August 1, 2012, Harris & Associates became a 100% employee-owned stock ownership plan (ESOP), S corporation.

Harris transitioned to a 100% ESOP for several reasons:

  1. The ESOP structure has laid the foundation for a financially sound future. Harris now makes long-term investments in innovative technology infrastructure and expanded professional development opportunities.
  2. The ESOP ensures a successful succession plan for the company.
  3. Every employee in a 100% ESOP company is an owner. We are proud of our ownership and entrepreneurial culture. Every employee-owner at Harris feels accountable for the company’s performance and has a personal investment in the success of our clients and their projects.
