As part of its stock market listing in October 2015, Showroomprivé has opened up its capital to employees through a free shares program, and a 20% reduction offer for employees.
492 employees with more than 1 years of service have taken part in the free shares program offered by the business, thus more than 75% of staff on permanent contracts. This significant percentage demonstrates the business' ambition to involve all of its employees in the future of showroomprive.com.
Moreover, 131 of the business' employees, thus 20% of eligible staff, have signed up to the employee offer and taken more than 20,000 shares. This program has been hugely successful with its young workforce and shows their confidence in the future of Showroomprivé.
"We wanted to involve our employees in our business adventure and include them in our growth and value creation. The new legal provisions which make employee shares easier and more attractive to manage, support the approaches we have taken with our stock market listing. Through this framework, we aim to reinforce the sense of belonging and loyalty for our employees at Showroomprivé. This will also enable us to attract new talent as we aim to create 130 jobs in 2016", announced Thierry Petit and David Dayan, co-CEOs and co-founders of showroomprivé.
