​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Maximize uptake in your employee equity plan

​Boosting enrolment in your employee equity plan means that even more of your employees are directly engaged in the success of your company. A more engaged workforce means that your employees are happier, more loyal and more productive. 

Introducing a plan or increasing enrolment in your employee equity plan requires some effort on the part of the plan sponsor. Marketing, Human Resources and Corporate Communications can all play a role in promoting your plan and boosting enrolment. 
We have years of global experience in administering employee equity plans and can help you with increasing enrolment in your plan.​​

When do I need a trustee?

Under the Income Tax Act, the majority of employee plan types require a trustee. A trust is used to hold shares or other assets for the benefit of employees, under the separate legal ownership of an independent trustee, until the assets become vested. The trustee is the legal owner of the trust assets until such time as they are distributed to beneficiaries. Computershare acts as trustee for a number of plan types, and can also act as trustee for bonds and debentures, and broker RRSPs.
