Non Share-Based Employee Benefit Schemes

Traditional share schemes may act as useful tools to foster employee loyalty and to align performance with shareholder values, but for some employers they are not an option.

Employers may be wary of diluting their stock; have no shares to give, as in the case of public sector organisations or charities; or want to reward employees based in overseas countries, but they are unable to do so because of securities, exchange, controls or internal country tax issues. Therefore there are alternatives to the traditional share schemes.
