Join Equity Methods on April 19 at the Boston NASPP Chapter meeting.

Raenelle James, CPA and Josh Schaeffer, PhD of Equity Methods will present “Innovative Compensation ‘Next Practices’ for 2017.”

The executive compensation landscape is growing in turbulence. Meeting the needs of shareholders, delivering value to retain and motivate executives, and responding to the recent and expected Dodd-Frank rule-making will force tough tradeoffs. As executive compensation has suffered from homogenization, many companies are looking for creative solutions that balance the competing priorities in front of them. It’s not too early to begin planning for innovative enhancements to drive in 2017.

In this presentation, we will share four “next practices” – trends in formation – that we’re seeing among clients and industry friends. We will discuss the growth of hybrid awards, ways of delivering more value for less accounting cost, techniques for setting operational targets, and lengthening performance periods. Stock plan professionals play a key role in supplying information to support decision-making and highlighting deficiencies in current LTIP programs. Our session will deliver practical tips to identify emerging trends that may be actionable in your organization.
