Congratulations: Celebrating 2 client wins at the 2024 GEO Awards 

Global Shares, a J.P. Morgan company, is happy to congratulate our clients Generali and Prysmian on their success at the 2024 GEO Awards Gala, which took place in Nashville, Tennessee, on 10th April .

The GEO Awards celebrate the best in global share plan design and administration. A premier event in the industry calendar, this year’s gala was hosted in the iconic Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. It was a fabulous evening where industry members came together to recognize and honor companies who have demonstrated excellence in and dedication to employee ownership. Global Shares was in attendance as J.P. Morgan Workplace Solutions, and as proud sponsors of the GEO Annual Conference.

Awards were presented to 16 companies in total across the various categories. Global Shares’ client wins were:

Generali Group: Most Innovative Plan Design

The judges praised Generali’s We SHARE 2.0 for its comprehensive design which incorporates currency protection and ties in to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) goals, such as CO2 emissions reductions. The panel was also impressed with the plan’s high participation rate, which spoke to its success in engaging employees.

Prysmian Group: Best Use of Employee Share Plans in an Emerging Market

Equity compensation has always been hardwired into the Prysmian business model and operations approach. Prysmian’s BE IN was created with a focus on extending these offerings to colleagues in emerging markets, many of whom may not have previously been recipients of share-based plans; a factor recognized by the judges in this category.

Global Shares, a J.P. Morgan company, is proud to support our clients in achieving employee ownership and were honored to be a part of this prestigious event. Well done to the finalists and a huge congratulations to all of the winners on the night.
