Employee Stock Option Plan

ESOP - Employee Stock Option Plan
Burnett / Choice is Texas' largest employee-owned staffing and placement firm. As one of our employees, you can become one of our owners.

Once you have reached the eligibility requirements, you can receive an allocation of shares of Burnett/Choice stock based on the relationship of your payroll to the total payroll of all employees who were eligible and also met the requirement for stock allocation. This is done in the first quarter of each year.

To be eligible, employees must:

 • have worked at least 1,000 hours in their
  Anniversary Year - and -
 • be employed at the end of the year
  (last quarter).

It takes 3 years of working the required hours to be vested.

Eligible employees will be sent a Summary Plan Description. The SPD contains a definition of the requirements for a staffing employee to be employed at the end of the ESOP plan year and other very valuable information. Becoming an owner of Burnett/Choice does not cost you anything. It is designed to help provide you with a retirement income.
