Companies allot equity shares to employees to motivate and retain them, align interests with shareholders, and provide performance-based incentives.

It creates an ownership culture and empowers employees to contribute to company growth. By granting ownership stakes, employees become more invested in the company’s success and make decisions that contribute to long-term value creation. 

This also fosters loyalty, commitment, and a long-term focus, while also differentiating the company in the job market. Ultimately, allotting equity shares aligns employee and shareholder interests, driving overall organisational success.
