The article discusses a stock compensation option that is offered to a defined group of subsidiary employees by a parent company. The global share plan enhances job satisfaction, employee retention, and employees' perception of internal equity across regions. Share plans also contribute to solidarity in a team-focused workforce. The administrative expense of global share plans in terms of shareholder dilution and cash cost are mentioned. Alan Nadel, who is partner and practice director for human capital services at Arthur Andersen, comments on the company's share plan survey of the Global 1250.
