Employee Recognition

Hartman’s biggest asset isn’t any of the properties in our $800 million portfolio, but the employees who make this company possible. We take joy in celebrating our successes together as a team, and socializing both in and out of the work environment.

Our goal is to build a team who are dedicated to excellence in their personal and professional lives, and giving back to others at every opportunity.

We value our employees not by the money they make or the power they wield, but by their impact, contribution and purpose toward making the world a better place for everyone.

As such, we recognize and reward excellence, and devotion to the company and our community on a daily, quarterly and annual basis.

Departmental managers create scorecards for each team member, with cash incentives to achieve mutual goals. High score employees are recognized at quarterly company-wide meetings, and annual pay raises are based on the scorecard’s consolidated scores for the year. Depending on the total score, the annual pay raise can range from 0 percent to 20 percent.

Hartman paid $8 Million in Employee Profit-Sharing Awards in 2020


Hartman paid $8 Million in employee profit-sharing and retention award bonuses to its employees following the completion of the company merger. The purpose of the retention plan is to provide a means for eligible employees, under conditions set out, to participate in the current profits of the company. The plan offers an incentive for current employees to continue delivering exceptional service in the future.

Our founder Al Hartman explains, “This is our way of better aligning our team members with the company’s shareholders. We want to recognize and reward the integral role our employees have had in building this great company and support them as they work towards financial independence and save for retirement.”

Employees received awards ranging in value from  $25,000 to $800,000 based on tenure and position within the company and will receive an increase in their monthly income as a result of the award as well as a payment at the end of their retention period.

One employee, who has been with the company 8 years and has been promoted 6 times, received an award for $400,000 which amounts to receiving an additional $25,000 each year in addition to their salary.

After receiving the award, the employee shared, “It is humbling to work for a company that considers its employees its number one asset and rewards accordingly. One of our core values states, we acknowledge and celebrate our achievements, and the company has certainly done that. The fact that Mr. Hartman is concerned about his employees’ long-term financial well-being is a testament to his faith.”

Another employee, who has been with the company 18 years, shared in the excitement stating, “Hartman offers many opportunities for its employees to grow and gives them the support and tools to do so.  I appreciate working for a company that acknowledges and rewards its employees for their hard work and effort.”
