Employees with some skin in the game will go the extra mile for their employers.
A share in the ownership of your company means a share in the wealth created by the collective efforts of everyone. So everyone works towards success and everyone benefits. What's not to love about that?
At Hardian we want to reward our employees in every way possible, and that includes giving them ownership in the business we are all building together.
I believe it is important for employees to have a stake in the business they are working for, to enable them to receive a worthwhile return on the hard work they put in.
I stand behind this campaign because it is fair to reward employees for their hard work and we have found it leads to higher productivity and more loyalty within our team.
I've always believed that a founder's success is based on team effort and it is important to provide reward for all those involved in taking the business forward. The sense of ownership it provides is a powerful factor in helping deliver the best results from team members.
Share schemes are a great way to incentivise and retain key people in our organisation. Having a vested interest in the success of the company means more people make good decisions for their teams and not just for themselves.
The right share schemes give back to the people that enable business to happen and I believe that rewarding staff for helping me to grow the business has helped with engagement and commitment.
We've always felt that the employees should share in the company's success should it get to the stage of realising that value. To that end we've used the Vestd platform to setup a share scheme that has 10% of the shares allocatable to the employees from the start of using the platform.
The team is critical to growth and success and you want to reward their dedication. Particularly in the early years where other forms of financial recognition aren't always viable. Options demonstrate and acknowledge the active part each member of the team plays in the business growth & ultimate success.
