The competitive labor market is forcing companies to reconsider their long-standing grant practices to recruit and retain employees. While there are employee-friendly design options that don’t require increasing burn rate, vesting schedules, or removing cliff vests, there are many factors to consider when making changes to existing grant practices. From coordinating vesting and/or issuance dates with open trading windows to considering impact on SBC expense and getting the award calibration process right, you’ll get the latest information on RSU grant practices and design along with practical advice on implementation and administration. 

Key questions this webinar will answer: 


  • What are the pros and cons of various vesting schedules? 


  • What is a good balance between managing burn rate and remaining competitive with your equity program? 


  • What are the suggested methodologies for calculating RSU price, grant frequency, and other guidelines/best practices? 


  • What are the recommended data sources to help you validate your decisions and make your case to the board?
