Employee shareholding

A vigorous employee profit-sharing and share ownership policy.

Vivendi places particular importance on ensuring that the fruits of the efforts of its employees are evaluated and distributed in a fair way.

Therefore, the Group has implemented a profit-sharing system that goes well beyond legal obligations and strongly encourages the development of employee savings plans, especially through employee shareholding. This is why most of the Group’s French subsidiaries have established incentive and/or profit sharing agreements.

Every year, Vivendi carries out a capital increase reserved for employees in France and internationally as part of its Group savings plan. As a result, employee shareholders collectively hold over 3% of Vivendi’s share capital, entitling them to representation on Vivendi’s Supervisory Board since 2013.

In addition, Vivendi launched a plan for the allocation of free shares benefiting all of its employees in 2006, which was repeated in 2012.
