BT may have operated share plans since privatisation, but it continues to be as dedicated as ever to ensuring it is a benefit that all colleagues value. Since the award in June, 11,190 colleagues internationally (55%), have accepted, with reminders those who haven't yet accepted.
"I have really enjoyed working with BT over the design and implementation of this new truly all-employee share plan. Using a mix of plans, BT has been able to offer this share-based award to all their colleagues across the globe and take advantage of the well understood SIP free share element in the UK. Using award acceptance features for the CSA's has meant that MIFID data could be captured at this stage to make the vesting process simpler for all BT participants and the BT payroll team!"
Tim Baker, Director, Employee Share Plans
"The delivery of yourshare across BT is nothing short of fantastic. Our focus has absolutely been on keeping it simple to align with BT’s values and we’ve definitely achieved that. Tim and the EQ team have really helped us to think outside the box and make maximum use of the digital solutions available to us."
