When companies develop benefit packages to attract top talent and remain competitive, they have to consider the right mix of rewards that employees want most. Human Resources leaders need a way to develop effective programs that attract and engage the employees you need now, and in the future, and to support every aspect of your talent strategy.

An Employee Share Purchase Plan (ESPP) can help you do that. Here are eight reasons why you should consider offering an ESPP.

Create an ownership culture in your company

Allow employees to become a shareholder of the company, and motivate them to have a greater stake in company’s success.

Attract and recruit top talent

Offering an ESPP can make your company more attractive, help you land top recruits and deliver on your people priorities.

Improved employee performance

Employees who participate in an ESPP are more engaged, tend to work longer hours, less likely be to absent or leave the organisation.

Broad-based, cross-border benefit

ESPP can be made available to all employees, around the globe.

Raise capital

Regular payroll deductions from ESPP participating employees provides a steady cash flow to the company.

Lower expense than other equity compensation

ESPP have a lower valuation than other forms of equity compensation in general.

Build employee wealth

ESPPs can help employees to build wealth through dollar cost averaging investment strategies via regular automatic payroll deductions and share purchases.

Substitute for another (more expensive) employee benefit

Offering an ESPP could be a more cost-effective benefit than other common cost prohibitive benefits.
