Lessons From Lockdown: Re-Assessing How You Manage Share Plans In A Digital Way

Webinar Recording

Recent, current, and even expected global lockdown’s have forced the business world to test whether widespread remote work is possible, and whether employees can adapt to working from home effectively. Despite overall positive uptake, certain adaptive measures have needed to be considered by global companies and across industries. Among the challenges which have emerged, we have seen that remote working has exacerbated the risks involved with effective share plan management and employee communication. While adopting various measures to overcome such challenges, companies have also been required to ensure continued compliance with governing regulation and standards.

In this panel discussion, ShareForce’s Adva Lewitte and guests Graeme Cook of Eximia and Lynette Jacobs of Pinsent Masons explore how the latest specialised technologies give businesses the flexibility they need to adapt in a thought-out and compliant manner.
