Irish commitment to employee share ownership recognised in US

The team at IPSA were absolutely delighted and honoured to learn that we had won an award at the prestigious Global Equity Association Awards held in Orlando, Florida, in April this year.

Our award was for OUTSTANDING SUPPORT OF GEO and recognised the efforts of IPSA for our “tireless promotion of the benefits of share ownership in Ireland”– particularly the success of ESOD17, the inaugural Employee Share Ownership Day held in June last year.

It is greatly encouraging that this global organisation has recognised IPSA and our member’s passion for employee share ownership here in Ireland, and we look forward to working with GEO again throughout the year to continue the great relationship we have fostered between our two organisations.

Here’s what GEO said about IPSA’s efforts: “In June of 2017, the Irish ProShare Association (IPSA), in collaboration with Google and GEO, hosted Ireland’s first Employee Share Ownership Day at Google’s European Headquarters in Dublin. Attracting more than 150 delegates, the event featured global experts conducting workshops on legal, tax, communications, and the strategic application of employee ownership for Irish businesses of all sizes.

“IPSA used the event as a platform to encourage local Government to implement proposals to broaden the range of employee share-based remuneration schemes available to companies in Ireland, in particular for smaller businesses.

“GEO thanks IPSA and Google for their partnership on this event and wishes to thank IPSA for their tireless promotion of the benefits of share ownership in Ireland. Congratulations to the entire team on running such a successful inaugural event.”
