Employee Share Plan Administration
Employee share plans transform your employees into shareholders, aligning employee reward with corporate performance. It’s for this reason they’re becoming an increasingly popular way used to attract, motivate and retain employees, but they can place a heavy administrative burden on your human resources, company secretariat and finance personnel.
With more and more businesses offering broad based equity plans to their employees, employee share plan administration has taken on a new level of complexity. One Investment Group offers superior services in employee share plan administration.
We deal with all facets of your employee share plan, from the design phase through to implementation and administration, ensuring the process is as smooth as possible.
It is not possible to design a single employee share plan that will work for all organisations. That’s why we’ve designed our system to be completely flexible, so we can provide you with a solution that is tailored to meet your needs while complying with regulatory requirements.
One Investment provides a range of employee share plan services which can be tailored to meet the needs of individual companies. These services include the following:
