Who We Are and What We Do

The Voice of Employee Share Ownership

We are the voice of employee share plan practitioners and professionals and aim to help foster responsible employee share ownership on terms favourable to companies and their employees.

The benefits of employee share ownership to employers, employees and the British economy as a whole are substantial.

There is a wealth of UK and international evidence that demonstrates employee share ownership can lead to higher productivity, better financial performance, greater innovation, lower staff turnover and improved employer/employee relations.

Employee share ownership also provides a very useful and tax efficient savings vehicle for millions of British workers.

It is essential that there is a strong voice, promoting employee share ownership.

has been providing that voice since 1992 when we were established by the Government, a group of FTSE 100 companies and the London Stock Exchange to promote wider share ownership, including employee share ownership. Today we focus solely on employee share ownership.

ifs ProShare Annual Awards

Once again, the awards attracted many practitioners and professionals, with more than 400 representatives of companies, advisers and administrators joining the celebrations, hosted by raconteur Gyles Brandreth, at the prestigious Grand Connaught Rooms in Covent Garden.

Commenting on the winning entries, Alan Scott, Head of Employee Share Ownership at ifs ProShare said:
“The past year has seen continued interest and growth in employee share ownership and this is reflected in the record number, and quality, of the entries we have received. Indeed, it was especially pleasing to see entries from new companies in a wide range of businesses, including those from the technology, banking, property and entertainment industries.

We congratulate all those who either won or were shortlisted for an award and celebrate the tremendous achievements of the share plan community as a whole"
