Every employee owner worries about the bottom line. Are our products and services meeting our customers' needs? Are we being productive and innovative enough? Are we making a profit?
But, successful employee owners look beyond the here and now. They develop a vision for their future prosperity and make a commitment to goals and strategies that ensure their long-term sustainability.
Building a sustainable business means to make the best decisions possible for today and tomorrow. Sustainability means promoting the best outcomes for employee owners, the company's internal stakeholders, and for the company's external stakeholders, which include customers, suppliers, and the local community or society in general.
