What most people I work with do is take the stock at 15% discount, and sell the next day. Well, not exactly true, some of us hold the stock. If you can buy the stock one day and sell the next at a 15% profit that looks like a good investment to me, and I would not turn it down. (and sometimes we can buy at 15% of a price 6 months ago, which can turn into a double at basicly no risk!) looks like selling the stock is a Foolish move and should be taken.
Don't call the stock purchase a 401k, they are different. I can't put the stock purchase money into 401k, it is after tax, taxable investments, and should be treated as such. (consider putting it into a Roth IRA after you sell, otherwise find a good Foolish investment for it.)
