Benefits & Compensation Round Table Meeting

November 8, 2017
11:30 AM – 1:00 PM

Compensation During a Company's Lifecycle

During the life cycle of a company, the compensation needs change and companies must adapt accordingly. We’ll explore six different seasons in a company’s life cycle (start-up, growth, maturity, decline, wind-down, & rebirth) and how a company’s approach to compensation must evolve. We’ll cover equity awards, IPO compensation, mergers and acquisitions, retention awards, and other compensation elements.  Throughout the discussion, we'll share real-world examples and lessons learned while navigating the various seasons.

Learning Objectives:
  • Define the various life cycles in a company
  • Identify at least one important need from a compensation perspective for each life cycle
  • Understand various compensation issues to watch out for in each life cycle
