  • ProShare Awards Winners 2014

Who We Are and What We Do

ifs ProShare has been the voice of employee share ownership since 1992 when we were established by HM Government, a group of FTSE 100 companies and the London Stock Exchange to promote wider share ownership. Today, we focus solely on helping to promote employee share ownership in the UK and are the voice of employee share plan practitioners and professionals.  

Annual Awards Dinner

Each year, ifs ProShare hosts an awards dinner to celebrate the success of companies in promoting employee share plans and employee share ownership. In particular, they reward innovation, effective communications and best practice.  This year's annual dinner will be held on Wednesday, 2 December 2015 at the the prestigious Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden, London. Details of the award categories and how to make a nomination will be announced in May.
