What is equity based compensation?

  • Equity based compensation is proven to be one of the most progressive methods to attract, retain and reward key employees.

    There are many different ways in which a Company can offer their employees equity: Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP), Share Options, Restricted Stock, Performance Shares, Employee Stock Purchase Plans (ESPP), Share Incentive Plans (SIPs) and many more.

    Decades of research confirms that Companies that are partially owned by their employees have a more engaged, loyal workforce resulting in a more profitable company.
