Sunrise places great value on an environment where employees feel a sense of shared responsibility for the company’s performance. This is partly facilitated through the performance evaluation process, but is also strongly enhanced by the employee stock option plan launched as part of the IPO. In connection with the IPO in February 2015, all employees had the opportunity to purchase a limited number of company shares at a reduced price.
Approximately 30 percent of the Sunrise employees benefit from the employee participation program launched as part of the IPO. This means they are part owners of the company.
