The success of any business depends on its ability to retain and motivate talented employees, particularly in today’s changing environment. Structuring an effective executive compensation plan that takes into account a myriad of business considerations, tax consequences, market trends, and other legal issues can be daunting.
We hosted a Foley Executive Briefing Series seminar that clarified the many complexities and addressed the questions on everyone’s mind when developing a compensation plan:
- What incentives can or should be included in a compensation plan?
- What are the pros and cons of different incentives and strategies?
- What tax benefits are available for both executives and their employers?
- What impact does the employer's legal structure have on the types of executive compensation plans available?
- How has Section 409A changed the landscape, and what can be done to mitigate its impact?
- What are recent market trends in compensation and reward systems?
- What pitfalls should be avoided?
This interactive panel was moderated by Foley attorneys Edouard C. LeFevre, Beth J. Felder, and Kenneth R. Appleby.
