Making Incentive Stock Options Work
|Date / Time:
While employers are always looking to provide incentive to their employees and reward them, it is often unclear how to do so. One attractive way to reward and and give incentive to employees is to provide them with incentive stock options.
Incentive stock options provide employees with an equity interest in the company such that a portion of their compensation is directly linked to the performance of the employer. While incentive stock options are a great way to provide incentive compensation to a company's employees, there are many requirements which must be satisfied in order for an award of Incentive Stock option to provide the biggest benefit possible to the employee.
This webinar will help those individuals responsible for determining how to compensate employees, and responsible for the compliance of employees' compensation, to understand why incentive stock options are an attractive form of incentive compensation and understand the many requirements which must be satisfied to most effectively provide incentive stock options to employees.

|About Webcasts / Audio Conferences / Podcasts:|
Webcasts, audio conferences, and podcasts are presentations that you
attend via the Internet, phone, or mobile device at a specified date and time for "live" versions, or at your convenience for "recorded" and "On-Demand" versions.
versions are interactive, meaning that participants can ask questions in real time, plus are a very cost-effective form of training because 1) you receive fast, convenient learning without
any out-of-office time; 2) you can invite as many colleagues as you'd like to listen in on a single phone line; 3) you incur no travel expenses; and 4) you and your colleagues are back
at work immediately after the session ends!
And though with recorded versions you do lose the ability to ask questions, you gain the ability to hear the presentation numerous
times and to share it with others in your office.
Handout materials and the phone number for live presentations are made available to you prior to the event via email from the
presenter and from the "MyAccount" link on the menu bar. Copies of the presentations are included with recorded versions.
