    Designing Long-Term Incentive Plans for Organizational Success

    Live Webinar

    NEW: Non-OCCABA member may register for $30.

    FREE for OCCABA members.

    August 30, 2018, from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm (Pacific Time)

    If you plan to grow your company, you will need a pay plan that rewards long-term performance.  You just will! Employees want to know they can participate in the business value they help create.

    The hard part is determining which value-sharing approach is most suitable.  Should you share stock?  If so, should you give away present value or just future value?  If you do not want to share equity, do you still want to tie the incentive to business growth in some way?  There are lots of questions to be answered before you can determine which long-term incentive plan (LTIP) strategy is best.

    In this webinar, we will help you know which questions to ask and how to answer them. In short, it will help you decide how to pick the best LTIP for your company.

    In this presentation you will learn:

    • Why it’s essential that you have a long-term incentive plan.
    • Nine different ways to share long-term value with those who help produce it.
    • How an LTIP “Decision Tree” works and why it is an effective way to determine which plan is best.
    • When it is appropriate to share stock in a private company.
    • Why phantom equity is often better for both shareholders and employees than giving away real stock.
    • How strategic deferred compensation can help meet both retirement planning and LTIP goals.
    • Why some companies favor a profit pool over other LTIP options.
