Competitive remuneration packages help our companies 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 84,500 of our people.
