BEE Employee Share Ownership Plan (ESOPs)
Employee Share Ownership Plan for BEE Ownership
Employee Share Ownership Plans (ESOPs) can address BEE Ownership, while aligning employees with the business owner’s interests. A well structured and executed ESOP can improve business performance by correctly incentivising staff and can also strengthen labour relations.
A critical and challenging part of executing an ESOP is managing employee expectations. South Africa’s linguistic and cultural diversity means it is important to effectively communicate how an ESOP works to beneficiaries.

In addition to considering the impact to the employee, we structure your ESOP taking BEE Ownership, tax, accounting, legal, flexibility, valuation and governance considerations into account. We also offer the expertise you need to design and implement an ESOP-specific communication strategy.
