The ESOP Advantage

Overview

Cross is a 100% employee-owned company. Through the ESOP, the company buys stock on behalf of eligible employees, allowing them to share in the company’s success and save for retirement. Being an employee-owner presents a unique opportunity for our associates to influence the value of their retirement. The ESOP is not a passive investment — associates have a vested interest in making sure their accounts’ value grows. Their performance every day on the job contributes to achieving overall company goals and profitability, which in turn may help increase the value of the company and the shares in their account.
