Specialist global energy talent acquisition group, Petroplan has launched an employee share scheme, believed to be the first of its kind in the recruitment sector. Its introduction comes at an exciting time for the company which is undergoing a strategic shift to sharpen and adapt its service offering.
The scheme, developed and rolled-out by the newly appointed senior leadership team, means that all Petroplan employees across the globe can build an ownership stake in the business. Options are granted to all employees at the time of joining the company and are exercisable on sale. The key difference with Petroplan’s scheme is that everyone gets their own personal stake in the organisation. Petroplan is updating the scheme every quarter, so new employees are able to join the scheme without delay.
The sense of ownership will drive productivity, performance and employee engagement; and the scheme will strengthen the group’s continued mission to attract and retain high quality talent within the industry.
CEO of Petroplan, Christopher Honeyman Brown, commented: “Our people are our greatest asset. That is why we have implemented a scheme that puts our employees at the heart of what we do and what we will become. Its introduction significantly strengthens our ambition to become the partner of choice in energy recruitment.
At Petroplan, we are champions of talent and an exceptional place to work: we are building a culture that’s inclusive and rewarding recognising that our success is our employees’ success, and we’re proud to break the mould with what we believe is an industry first.”
