Rewarding employees (the chairman and members of the Management Board are explicitly excluded) with BTC shares represents a motivational measure and additional encouragement for efficient and high-quality work of all employees, and indirectly for better results and future successful and stable operation of the company; employee ownership and good company results are closely interrelated with the aim of achieving a more dynamic co-management of the company on the basis of employee co-ownership.
At the BTC company, the employee ownership has been present for almost 20 years. Long term ownership connections between those creating and working at the company represent one of the bases for development achieved in this period, since during the entire period, the employees and management acted in collective spirit and pursued the goals of long-term investments, stable ownership, correct interpersonal relationships and ensuring the financial and social security, with the awareness that those will be ensured only by efficient work and successful operation of the company.
