Employee Share Plans And The Benefits For SMEs

The recent rapid rises in costs, the Covid-19 pandemic, and the tight labour market are providing challenges for many businesses. Key to overcoming such challenges is rebuilding a better relationship with employees. One way of doing that is by engaging your staff through Employee Share Ownership. Hosted by Michael Mainelli, Executive Chairman, Esop Centre and Z/Yen Group, and Richard Burge, Chief Executive, London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI), this webinar will hear from expert speakers who will explain:

  • Why Employee Share Ownership is a “good thing” and why it is good for business
  • How it can be used to build better relationships with employees – how employee share plans can play a key role in contributing to employees’ savings, morale and engagement - How it can encourage cohesion, promote productivity, and provide financial security
  • The pros and cons of Employee Share Ownership, how it works and what the options are

Speaker Petronella West will share her experience of setting up and running an EMI (Enterprise Management Incentive) scheme for Investment Quorum's employees.
