EXECUTIVE COMPENSATION & BENEFITS
Maximizing the impact of executive compensation to build long-term value.
Executive compensation has become a highly scrutinized and complex topic in today’s corporate environment. Compensation programs must address an organization’s specific needs while ensuring adherence to any regulatory requirements, corporate governance, board of directors and/or shareholder concerns. All the while, providing a competitive program to attract the very best of talent. Using appropriate benchmarks and qualitative analysis, we partner with small, medium, and large organizations across all industries to create competitive executive compensation programs that attract and motivate key talent, without alienating shareholders. Aligning executive pay with performance is challenging for public, private, and non-profit organizations. Designing incentive programs that will successfully motivate key leaders that drive the organization’s success is a delicate endeavor that must be planned and monitored carefully. Competition for executive talent is intense for all business landscapes, and inappropriate performance expectations for executives can result in high and unplanned turnover.
We partner with your firm to ensure that executive compensation programs are compliant with regulatory requirements, supportive of strategic objectives, tax-efficient, and competitive. Our senior consultants with decades of consulting experience work to help assess and refine your plans. To design a successful compensation system, the equity component must align management and shareholders, but must also provide an appropriate pay out for successful execution. Companies need to be clear about what drives value, and tie compensation to the variables that matter, such as customer retention or sales growth.
