Top Corporate Lobby Group

Companies ranked in the European Employee Ownership TOP 100 are setting up a strong European lobby group.
Which changes in European legislations and practices should we pursue in order to facilitate multinational share plans? Which are companies' expectations regarding multinational employee ownership schemes and practices?
By joining the lobby group of The European Employee Ownership TOP 100, EFES is to suggest European largest employee ownership companies to have actions as follows :
- to set up a strong group of influence dedicated to the benefit of companies sharing employee ownership practices;
- to give the TOP 100 and its companies a wide publicity through various means including a European conference addressing to the European representatives, social partners and press the importance and benefits of employee ownership;
- to act towards European Affairs in order to emphasis the importance of employee ownership and to get enhancements enabling more efficient international share plans.
