Award recognizes leadership and innovation in helping employees reach retirement
Landscape Structures Inc., a Delano, Minn.-based commercial playground equipment manufacturer, was recognized for its Total Retirement Offering at the 2018 Plan Sponsor of the Year Awards, which was held on March 29 in New York City. Landscape Structures was honored with the award based on the richness of the retirement program offerings, commitment to the program, and leadership and innovation in helping employees reach a secure retirement.
Landscape Structures and its employees work in tandem to ensure retirement goals are met. “We encourage employees to save at least 8 percent of their earnings in the 401(k), so they receive the full 4 percent employer match,” says Karlye Emerson, vice president of corporate strategy and human capital at Landscape Structures. “And the employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) has contributed, on average, 15 percent of their earnings each year.”
