Andrew Bell, Chairman, states: "Successive governments have promoted SIPs and the concept of wider share ownership. Few companies have risen to the challenge of creating employee share ownership schemes because of the effort needed to set them up. We are confident that remunerating employees in this way will increase their long term commitment to the success of the business and help us build a better company".
