Event Details

Please join the SVC NASPP for a special chapter meeting which will include a special champagne networking session and a festive holiday lunch. 

Equity is the most flexible compensation vehicle companies have at their disposals. And, yet more companies do not take advantage of this resulting in the vast majority of equity programs looking eerily similar (e.g., all RSUs with 4-year annual vest or ESPPs with 15% discount and 6-month lookback). What are some small changes we can make to differentiate our offering, make it more appealing to recruits, or be more effective in achieving the stated objectives? Our speakers will examine a number of small design tweaks to address big needs.
