Explanation:
Ralf provides the correct answer. Never change shareholder value if you are talking to educated persons. If not I suggest:
Der Aktienplan für Arbeitnehmer ist dafür vorgesehen, Arbeitnehmer an der Erhöhung des Unternehmenswerts (or: am Shareholder Value) zu beteiligen.

Shareholder Value or Shareholder-Value


Explanation:

I'm afraid I do not quite understand what you would like to know. Your question showed up under ProZ KudoZ as a request for translation from German into English but your context is already in English.

If you would like to know what a German says for the English term "shareholder value", then Ralf and Andy quite right, a German usually writes "Shareholder Value", sometimes with a hyphen, "Shareholder-Value".

If you would like to know more about what shareholder value is, these sites might help:

http://www.cabs.de/c30help/c31h0100.htm

Der Shareholder-Value-Ansatz ist ein Verfahren zur Unternehmensbewertung. Er berechnet den zukünftigen "freien Cash-Flow". Dazu verwendet er den Jahresumsatz, die Umsatzwachstumsrate, die Umsatzüberschussrate, die Investitionsrate und den Kapitalkostensatz. Dieses zukünftigen Cash-Flows werden mit dem Kapitalkostensatz auf den Gegenwartswert diskontiert.

Freier-Cash-Flow = (Umsatz * Umsatzwachstum * Umsatzüberschussrate) - (Umsatz * Umsatzwachstum * Investitionsrate)

Die künftigen monatlichen Freien-Cash-Flows der nächsten 10 Jahre werden zum Kapitalkostensatz auf den heutigen Zeitpunkt abgezinst.
Die Summe der abgezinsten Freien-Cash-Flows ergibt den "Shareholder-Value" bzw. Unternehmenswert.

Aus dem Verhältnis des "Shareholder-Value" zur Höhe des gezeichneten Kapitals wird der Aktienkurs des Unternehmens berechnet.

http://www.zdnet.de/finance/lexikon/l-shareholdervalue-wc.ht...

Managementprinzip, dass den Nutzen für die Aktionäre an die erste Stelle setzt. Der Anteilseigner profitiert im Idealfall von einer hohen Dividende und steigenden Kursen. Um den Gesamtwert eines Unternehmens zu steigern, setzt das Management unter anderem auf eine zielgerichtete Unternehmensstrategie, eine Informationspolitik im Sinne der Aktionäre und auf überdurchschnittliche Eigenkapitalrenditen.

Definition Free Cash Flow
Umsatzerlöse

- Herstellungskosten

- Vertriebskosten

- Verwaltungskosten

+ sonst. betr. Erträge

- sonst. betr. Aufwendungen

+ Abschreibungen

- Steuern

- Erhöhung Working Capital

= Free operating Cash Flow

Daraus abgeleitet die Definition von "Shareholder Value"

Die Summe der mit den Kapitalkosten abgezinsten Free Operating Cash Flows ergibt den Unternehmenswert / Wert der Geschäftseinheit (Enterprise Value)

EV-Marktwert des Fremdkapitals - akt. Cash = Shareholder Value


http://www.steuernetz.de/controllerlex/s2.html

Shareholder Value = Unternehmenswert – Fremdkapital

Unternehmenswert = Gegenwert alle zukünftigen Free Cash Flows

What is shareholder value?
Shareholder value is nothing but the total benefit to shareholders from investing in a company. This includes dividends, and perhaps more importantly, capital appreciation of the shareholders’ investments. Broadly, both are related to the capacity of the company to generate profits, and as a general rule higher profits, when measured in relation to invested capital, increase shareholder value.

http://www.derivativesstrategy.com/magazine/archive/1995-199...

While the precise definition of shareholder value will tend to vary, it is usually tied to one or more of the following: future stock price targets, future stock price targets relative to certain benchmarks, such as the S&P 500 or an industry-wide index, or future cash flow targets such as earnings-per-share (EPS) or earnings before interest, tax, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA).

http://www.meansbusiness.com/Leadership-and-Change-Books/Res...

The currently prevailing, precise definition of shareholder value has been succinctly stated as economic return generated for shareholders, as measured by dividends plus increase in the company's share price.
