Family businesses and privately held companies increase freedom to innovate and operate with less complexity and pressure... or do they?   Family businesses and private corporations represent over 65% of the business in the United States. Yet, publicly owned companies receive considerably more attention than privately owned companies when it comes to the design and administration of reward programs. 

Join us December 14 as our expert panel examines reward strategies and challenges faced by family businesses, private corporations, and public corporations who are considering to ‘go private’. The panel will delve into how these types of programs can more effectively attract, retain, and motivate employees while at the same time create a competitive advantage by aligning the interests of employees and owners.

Panel discussion topics will include:

  • Best practices associated with equity and company ownership - for senior executives and levels below
  • Reward challenges posed by mergers and acquisitions
  • Integrating and repositioning rewards when transitioning from public to private ownership, or vice versa
  • Executive compensation, succession planning, and change of control situations
  • Balancing incentives and rewards between employees who are not family members or owners
