We want to unite our employees around a common project and involve them in Verallia’s value creation. Since 2016, we have therefore proposed 7 employee shareholding offers to open up the Group’s capital to our employees, under conditions reserved for them. Each of these operations has met with a high participation rate, sending a strong message of support and confidence in our model among our employee shareholders.
The most recent operation, opened in May 2022 in 8 countries, offered our employees a new opportunity to become shareholders and to be associated with the Group’s development and performance over the long term. Nearly 3,200 employees, or 41% of eligible employees worldwide, took part in the offer.
In just seven years, these operations have already enabled more than 45% of employees to become Verallia shareholders, directly and through the FCPE, as part of the successive offers reserved for them. Employees now hold 4.1% of the Groups’capital.
