Work for Robert Bearden Inc.

"100% Employee Owned"

Employees own 100% of RBI and EARN stock in the company each year that goes towards retirement. Most don’t understand the philosophy, but it’s really simple. The majority of companies are owned by a select few people or they are large publicly traded companies with many shareholders. For those companies, profits go to a select few owners and/or shareholders of the company. At RBI, those owners are all 250 of our employees and we distribute our year-end-profits amongst all shareholders (better known as our employees).

Being Prepared for Retirement is an Afterthought for Most Employees, but at RBI we encourage our employees to BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND!
