Dan Walter, President and CEO of Performensation was quoted in this article on the topic of more broad-based use of equity compensation during the current hot market. "Staking more employees in the company breeds loyalty and builds wealth in a way that salaries alone cannot, managers say."
Dan adds the following thoughts to the article:
"Since the 1980's equity compensation usage has grown in alignment with the growth of company values and the stock market. Take a look at our Equity Compensation Golden Decade graphic to learn a bit more about this. Designing and using equity compensation to be effective in both strong and weak markets requires the expertise and experience Performensation offers. Our focus on aligning these programs with company strategy and culture results in programs that work now and into the future."
