Remuneration and share ownership

Competitive remuneration packages help us attract and retain the best people. We regularly benchmark our compensation against other companies in our sector.

We motivate our people by providing performance-related remuneration in addition to basic salaries. More senior employees are eligible for incentives based on their performance against annual or multi-year goals for the operations they lead.

Share ownership gives our people a financial stake in the company and a share in its success. WPP’s Worldwide Ownership Plan, introduced in 1997, has granted share options to approximately 72,000 of our people.
