Share schemes are a really useful way for a business to engage and retain employees, and to therefore improve productivity. It is a very effective way of making employees stakeholders in the business.
Share schemes may be included in contracts of employment for senior executives and directors of a business, helping them to feel more invested in the business, its objectives and overall performance. This sense of ownership increases their engagement and tends to make individuals think of the longer-term performance of the business, rather than the day-to-day shorter-term focus. Businesses may also enjoy the benefits of share schemes as they can be, with the correct structure and permissions, highly tax efficient.
