MELBOURNE, Australia, May 15, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- BHP Billiton's 'SharePlus' employee share plan took the top gong for Best International Share Plan at Thursday's Employee Ownership Australia Awards night, a testament to the company's dedication to offering its people this additional remuneration opportunity since 2007.
Fletcher Building was recognised for Best New Employee Share Plan, adding another piece of silverware to the growing collection for its FBuShare plan.
Matthew Garvan, Managing Director of Computershare Plan Managers, said it was just reward to both companies for offering their employees the opportunity to share in growth and profits.
"Both Fletcher Building and BHP Billiton made a conscious effort to recognise their employees and support investment in their plans through various levels of purchase matching. The outstanding take-up rates for both plans are testament to these companies delivering products perfect for their respective workforces," he said.
Computershare has worked side-by-side with BHP Billiton to support almost 25,000 participants, based in 35 countries, manage their investments and realise the benefits of employee share ownership.
Launched in 2011, FBuShare's inaugural offer was taken up by more than 30% of eligible employees. A credit to the plan's carefully constructed design was that more than 97% of all employees across its global workforce were eligible to participate.
