How competitive are your equity plans?  Find out as we examine the results of the NASPP and Deloitte 2019 Domestic Stock Plan Design Survey.  Published since 1996, this is the industry’s most comprehensive survey on stock plan design, covering restricted stock and units, performance awards and stock options.  The panel will highlight the survey results and compare the latest results to past surveys to illustrate growing trends.

  • Dan Ferretti, Manager, Compensation Operations, Campbell Soup Company
  • Rose Hoffman, Director, Global Stock Plan Services, Paypal Inc.
  • Joseph Rapanotti, Senior Manager, Deloitte Consulting LLP
Among other topics, this program will include:
  • A first look at real-world data showing how equity plans are changing in light of the new Section 162(m)
  • Trends in the usage of full value awards vs. stock options and service-based vs. performance-based awards
  • Current practices with respect to retirement, including how companies define retirement and how awards are paid out to retirees
  • Trends in other key award features, including vesting provisions, procedures for tax withholding, payment of dividends, and termination provisions
