Empowered by Employee Ownership

‘People first’ is more than our motto—it’s at the heart of why we chose to be employee owned. Every Heart of the House employee owns part of the company and shares in our collective success. You’ll be supported by staff who are personally invested in delivering exceptional service and making every guest’s experience outstanding.

Benefits of Employee-Ownership

Higher Performance

Everyone from our housekeepers to our F&B talent owns shares in the company. As we flourish, so does the value of their stock. This direct link between company success and personal gain gives every employee owner a compelling financial incentive to excel in their roles.

Lower Staff Turnover

Employee owners are more likely to stick around. That’s because their financial rewards grow the longer they stay. This means you can count on a committed and stable team supporting you today and in the future. 

increased engagement

Employee owners aren’t just working for a paycheck—they’re growing a company they own. They think and act like owners, which means you receive superior service and quality from a team who is engaged and truly cares about your satisfaction.  

Stronger Teamwork

Ownership creates a deep sense of unity and cooperation among our staff. They not only work hard–they work in harmony to keep performance high and you and your guests happy. 

Happy Employees improve guest satisfaction

Our employee-owners have every reason to smile! Statistics reveal that workers in ESOPs (Employee Stock Ownership Plans) enjoy numerous advantages over those at non-ESOP companies. Happy employees create happy guests!
