Gopuff has launched its new GoStock Equity Programme offering employees the chance to share ownership in the business.
In an internal memo seen by Grocery Gazette, 1,400 of the grocery delivery service‘s employees and workers will receive equity and an ownership stake of the company.
“This is a direct acknowledgement of their continued efforts and underscores Gopuff’s commitment to the UK, a priority market which has experienced significant growth,” the memo said.
“With that, we are implementing the GoStock Equity Program today in the UK. With this new program, our eligible frontline employees and workers will receive equity and an ownership stake of the company,” it added.
The move follows the appointment former Amazon veteran, Patrick Bigatel who joins Gopuffas its vice president of grocery.
Prior to his new role, which he began this month, Bigatel worked as a general manager for Amazon across Amazon heavy-bulky, home services and local selling.
