“Plan Design in the Emerging Business Model”
13 September 2016
Fred will lead a panel of local practitioners in a discussion of current trends and norms in compensation & benefits plan design reflecting two primary forces: a focus on shareholders at the expense of all other stakeholders, particularly employees; and a perpetuation of ineffective practices for decades that have not provided benefits to any stakeholders, including employees. The rapidly emerging model of business – whether labeled sustainability, conscious capitalism, ESG, CSR, responsible investing, or impact business – is going to revolutionize the current norms in compensation & benefits. Merit increases, annual bonus programs, performance reviews, performance conditions on executive equity, employee benefits, and the newest wave of workplace perks. All of these are being turned upside down. Leaders will discuss where things are going, and why.
