Steria has won the "2010 Employee Shareholding Grand Prix" in the SBF 250 category , an award previously presented to the company in 2008.
With 19.7% of its capital held by its employees, Steria was awarded this distinction at the Palais des Congrès de Paris as part of the Actionaria tradeshow.
The Employee Shareholding Grand Prix Contest is held by the French Federation of Employee Shareholders and Former Employees (FAS) with the intention to award companies that promote all aspects of Employee Shareholding.
This award once again recognises Steria's work in promoting a high level of employee shareholding and in involving Steria employee shareholders in the governance of their company through Soderi, the company that represents their interest.
This model enables employee shareholders to play an active role in key decisions about the future of the company. No other company listed in Europe shares this model.
The jury was impressed by the dual role of Steria employee shareholding - as it is both entrepreneurial (for strategic decisions) and asset-based (promoting growth based on share performance).
For François Enaud, Steria's Chief Executive Officer, "This award, won for the second time, recognises our efforts in promoting an innovative model of corporate governance that closely brings employee shareholders into the heart of our strategic decision-making."
