Are you a founder or entrepreneur of a small to medium sized business considering incentivising your employees with an employee share scheme?

Employee share schemes are a great way for companies to attract and retain employees and to reward and incentivise them by aligning their interests with those of their shareholders, with the most common being EMI share options. However, that’s not the only route for you. In this webinar, we explain more about employee share schemes and the many benefits that come with implementing them.
