Diageo Discretionary plans are a key element of Diageo’s senior employees compensation package, rewarding executives for the long-term success of the company as reflected in its share price growth.
Share plans support our overall reward strategy through attracting, motivating and retaining great talent and our performance culture across a diverse range of demographics and geographies. We use our share plans to provide potential opportunities for our employees to build wealth and share in the success of Diageo.
An important element of Diageo’s reward strategy is to align and reward employees through share based incentives. We aim to use our share incentives to:
Align our employees’ interests with those of our shareholders;
Provide potential opportunities to build wealth and share in the success of Diageo;
Balance the total reward package with a longer term, forward looking incentive;
Provide a link between company performance and the value of each individual’s total reward package; and
Attract new talent and retain and motivate our current talent pool.
Diageo operate a variety of long term share incentive plans. Some of these plans are no longer available for new awards but still have options due to vest over the coming years. You can find more information on these plans in this section within the plan pages and in the question and answers.
