Microsoft Dynamics Gold Partner ArcherPoint Is Now 100% Employee Owned
ATLANTA, GA — January 8, 2019 — ArcherPoint Inc., a Microsoft Dynamics ERP Gold Partner and full-service provider for Dynamics NAV and Dynamics 365 Business Central, is pleased to announce that the company is now 100% employee owned.
ArcherPoint CEO and co-founder Greg Kaupp introduced the idea in 2012 of implementing a qualified ESOP (“Employee Stock Ownership Program”) as a way of helping current and future employees build for their retirement. Employee owned companies often outperform their nonemployee owned counterparts and Greg wanted to see what ArcherPoint could accomplish when everyone had a stake in the outcome. ArcherPoint implemented the first phase of the ESOP in 2015 when employees were given the opportunity to invest in ArcherPoint via their 401k retirement accounts.
“My dream for ArcherPoint has been that, by forming an employee-owned company, we would unlock the entrepreneurial potential of an entire organization through the power of ownership,” said Greg Kaupp, ArcherPoint CEO. “It is both gratifying and exciting to see this dream become a reality—and to see how ownership has already begun to impact how people think about serving our clients and stewarding the business.”
The decision will benefit ArcherPoint as well as its employees and clients in many ways. Most importantly: “Being 100 percent employee owned means that everyone has a vested interest in the success of the company,” said CFO Scott Peetz. “Because we are all invested, we all care about the health of the entire company, helping our co-workers and pitching in wherever we are needed to ensure success across the board.”
In addition, employee-ownership complements our organizational governance model of Holacracy. Holacracy is a cell-based distributed decision making corporate governance model that helps to unlock the potential of each and every role in the organization. Holacracy represents a fundamental redistribution of power in an organization by giving people a voice, empowering them with more authority and autonomy in their roles, and creating an environment where change is encouraged.
