Employee retention? Consider EMI Schemes!

If you're like most startups, the retention of talented employees is a top priority. EMI Schemes can be a great way to achieve this!

EMI Schemes are a government scheme where employees can purchase shares in the company at a discount. This helps to keep employees invested in the company and its success. They also provide an incentive for employees to stay with the company for a longer period of time. In this blog post, we will discuss the benefits of EMI Schemes for startups and employee retention!

EMI Schemes & Employee Retention

EMI schemes can be a great way for startups to attract and retain key employees. By offering employees the opportunity to buy shares in the company at a discounted rate, EMI schemes can help to align employee and shareholder interests. In addition, EMI schemes can help to reduce the overall costs of employee equity compensation by providing a tax-efficient way to grant shares. 

However, EMI schemes can be complex and costly to set up, so startups should carefully consider whether an EMI scheme is right for them.

Automation of you EMI Scheme

One way to offset some of the cost is Automating your EMI Scheme with software like Vested, Seedlegals and CapDesk

This has a number of benefits over traditional methods like Excel. For one, it's much easier to keep track of your employee shareholders and ensure compliance with the many relevant regulations. Automating also eliminates the need for tedious manual updates, so you can be confident that your records are always up-to-date. 💪

Perhaps most importantly, using software to manage your EMI Scheme can help you avoid costly mistakes - after all, it's much easier to spot errors when everything is laid out in front of you in an easy-to-use interface. If you're looking for a way to streamline your EMI Scheme management, switching to EMI software will be the answer.
