2020 has been a game-changer for equity compensation. With no clear end in sight for the COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty it has brought to the global economy, it’s time to rethink how you grant equity. In this webinar, we’ll explore key strategies to consider for next year’s annual equity awards.  

Get answers to questions such as: 

  • What strategies should companies consider for setting performance goals in an uncertain economy? 

  • Is relative TSR the best performance target for an uncertain economy?  

  • Should companies temporarily shift from performance-based awards to time-based equity? 

  • Does ESG have to be a component of long-term incentives? 

  • How should companies manage their burn rate? 


  • Terry Adamson, Managing Director, BDO 

  • Kathryn Neel, Managing Director, Semler Brossy Consulting Group 

  • Simiso Nzima, Investment Director & Head of Corporate Governance – Global Equity, CalPERS
