Background: Employee share ownership has the greatest impact on company productivity and performance when participation rates are high, but a major challenge currently facing employee share plans is the changing nature of the labour market. The rise of the gig economy, outsourcing and the demise of a “job for life” have served to diminish access to share plans for a significant proportion of the workforce.

Gig economy workers: freelancers; independent contractors; consultants etc, are treated as self-employed rather than employees of a company.

In this webinar, share schemes expert David Craddock explores the considerations that apply to the involvement in company share schemes of individuals who are not employees or executive directors of the company.

Speaker: David Craddock is an independent consultant specialising in employee share ownership and reward management. A recognised authority on the subject, he is the author of The Tolley’s Guide to Employee Share Schemes , along with many other essential books and courses. David’s clients range from major public limited companies with international considerations to smaller private companies where the requirements are for Enterprise Management Incentives, tax-unapproved share scheme arrangements and market-making employee share trust structures. David has successfully established employee share schemes and employee benefit arrangements worldwide and to date has travelled to over 30 countries to personally facilitate their introduction. He enhances his service through a long experience in share reconstructions and share valuation.
