Amadeus: 2023 Best Plan Effectiveness (10,000 – 75,000 Employees)
The Amadeus Equity Value Plan is an innovative and flexible share plan that motivates and rewards top-performing managers by fostering a culture of recognition and alignment with the company. The plan has achieved high participation rates and retention of key talent, indicating its success in identifying and rewarding top performers.
LEO Pharma: 2023 Best Plan Effectiveness (Under 10,000 Employees)
LEO Pharma’s Employee Share Purchase Plan (ESPP), which launched in 2021, achieved a 43% participation rate and incentivised employees, drove company growth, and promoted alignment towards becoming a publicly traded entity. The success was attributed to LEO Pharma’s pre-launch strategy, which involved consulting with employees on the plan design and ensuring that they were informed about the proposed plan.
