Make sure that you are contributing enough to any pension or share save schemes to secure the maximum match or contribution from your employer.
E.g. if your employer will match your pension contribution up to 10% of your salary, be sure to contribute 10% of your salary.
Likewise, if your employer will grant you an additional share for every one that you buy, then buy as many as you can.
You will need to have a strategy for divesting these shares over time so that you are not left overexposed to your employers stock. That is a subject for another day.
