For companies going public, it is critical to begin planning executive compensation structures as early in the process as possible. In this short clip, Jon Szabo, Partner at Meridian Compensation Partners, explains why.
Simply put, there are a lot of decisions to be made. Jon recommends that companies move through the process thoughtfully and intentionally. A detailed project plan that outlines what needs to be done, when, and by whom, can help companies know what to expect.
For example, public companies are subject to additional scrutiny via public disclosures, shareholder input on compensation strategies, and ever-changing rules and regulations. Early planning can help avoid surprises down the road.
