Individuals working in-house at plan issuers typically have to deliver share plans to their employee populations on very lean resources and budgets, pulling in the support of a network of individuals within their broader organisation. They also have to juggle many priorities – and stakeholders, external and internal – to keep their plans compliant and effective. This award recognises the commitment shown by an individual in promoting and encouraging informed employee share plan participation within their organisation. Their job title may or may not denote formal or full-time involvement in share plans, and their role may well encompass a number of different responsibilities alongside share plans.
Individuals may be nominated by their line manager, colleagues or an advisor or service provider involved in the design or delivery of the organisation’s share plans.
- Examples of the individual’s commitment of time and effort.
- Ability to generate enthusiasm amongst colleagues and plan participants.
- Examples of practical help given in encouraging informed participation in the plan(s).
- Factors demonstrating the individual going above and beyond expectations of their role / relative seniority, and/or dealing with significant organisational and perhaps regulatory changes and challenges.
