Computershare (ASX:CPU) is delighted to announce that two of its clients were awarded prestigious accolades at the 2009 Global Equity Organization Awards in Paris yesterday.

Royal Dutch Shell (EURONEXT:RDSA) won the award for 'Best Plan Effectiveness', reflecting its achievements in launching and communicating its Global Employee Share Purchase Plan. The launch attracted over 12,200 staff saving in 36 currencies across 51 countries. The award recognised how highly effective plan design, technology, launch and communications were combined to achieve an increase in take up of over 30% compared to previous years.

'It is fantastic to receive a GEO award for the second year in a row. Our Global Employee Share Purchase Plan delivers on a key company goal of standardising and simplifying the way we do things. In Computershare we have the ideal partner to help us achieve our company aims', commented Pam Roffe, Manager, Global Stock Plans.

Logica Plc (LSE:LOG) walked away with the accolade for 'Best Use of Technology', their second industry recognition in recent months. Their achievement was in revolutionising the way in which the company delivers share plans to employees in the UK and internationally, reducing costs and environmental impact while improving standards of service delivery. In turning electronic and banishing paper, Logica increased plan uptake by 40%.

Jo Gomm, Group HR at Logica said: "We are delighted that, in partnership with Computershare, we have built a solution that can be reused by Logica time and again and emulated by other companies."

The Global Equity Organization Awards celebrate excellence by honouring impressive companies from around the world who truly demonstrate their leadership and dedication to their employee stock plans; designing, communicating, or offering programmes that allow millions of employees worldwide to participate in their company's share plan.

Iain Wilson, Client Relationship Director for Computershare Plan Managers, said: "We're delighted to have two more of our clients' share plans recognised for their best practice approach to design, technology, launch and communications. We've reached some truly unique levels with our share plans in recent years, and will continue to break new ground in the coming months.'
