Equity Incentives Design Survey

A Global Look at Equity Compensation Design Practices

The NASPP-Deloitte Consulting LLP Equity Incentives Design Survey provides the field's most in-depth analysis of how public companies design stock-based compensation plans for employees. Results reveal valuable benchmark data and trends that companies may use to evaluate and optimize their equity programs across five key areas:  

  • Plan design
  • Time-based full value awards
  • Performance-based awards
  • Time-based stock options (SOs) and stock appreciation rights (SARs)
  • Country-specific considerations
Last Conducted: 2021
