10.2 Case Study—Making Conditional Share Awards Work for You and Your Employees

A not-to-be-missed session for anyone exploring ways of using Conditional Share Awards (CSAs) to reward global employees. Using a variety of company case studies, including BT's introduction of 'yourshare' with an award of shares to 101,997 employees, this panel of experts will look at the diverse approaches taken to awarding CSAs. Since 2020 and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, companies have been extending their existing employee share plans to include CSAs as a way of rewarding larger groups of employees.
This session will explore reasons for introducing awards and different strategies for setting eligibility criteria, how employees receive and accept awards, the length of vesting and holding periods, the treatment of leavers and country specific variations. An important part of any new plan involves communicating effectively to employees and the panelists will share examples of CSA documentation used in practice, highlighting key messaging topics. This discussion will compare and contrast the plans, how company objectives influenced their design and challenges faced along the way. Attend this session to hear how you can add CSAs to your employee share plans!
