The two ultimate goals of any employee participation plan are to award and engage startup employees.
Startup equity, however, is complicated and to make sure you can achieve these goals you should explain the plan thoroughly and clearly.
Most often the value of the plan is greater than what the employees recognize, so when you set up the employee participation plan, pay attention to how the benefits are perceived.
On the other hand, most of the employees don’t know what the procedure of receiving a grant looks like.
Empowering them in this process instills trust towards you as the employer, shows that you care and that you’re an expert in employee participation plans.
This post will help you prepare for the questions about participation plans that employees most often ask their employers.

In Ledgy, for example, each employee can see their own employee dashboard which answers all of their questions about their grant.
