Deliveroo is to give all employees free share options in the company in a move worth nearly £10m, the company announced this morning.
The share options will be offered to all 2,000 staff in 12 markets as well new recruits, the restaurant delivery company said.
The move in effect extends to all Deliveroo employees a share options package previously available to senior staff, according to a spokesman.
The longer staff are employed by the company, the more shares they will be able to accumulate.
“While offering staff share options is a common way for firms to recruit senior staff, very few offer them universally to all, regardless of seniority and at all levels,” the company said in a statement.
Deliveroo CEO Will Shu said: “Our phenomenal growth and success has been made possible thanks to the hard work, commitment and passion of the people who make this company what it is, and that deserves recognition, which is why I want all employees to be owners in Deliveroo and to have a real stake in the company’s future as we expand and grow.”
