Performance and reward
Executive and employee reward
We can help you design compensation programs for employees and executives that will help meet your corporate objectives. These would include staffing models, overall compensation strategy, benchmarking, equity design and implementation, and assistance with other operational issues such as proxy disclosure and communication support.
We help you create and implement equity-based reward programs that can improve business performance — by aligning employee motivation with business objectives and shareholder interests. We can help design an effective equity plan (or review existing ones) that takes into account the accounting, tax, and other issues of the participating countries. Our multi-faceted approach and understanding combined with our methodologies can save you and your employees money and bother.
HR cost optimization
We can identify initiatives for both HR program (including employee benefits) and service delivery cost improvements that are customized to meet your overall financial goals. Using a comprehensive methodology, we perform an independent, thorough review of each HR program and area to identify actual cash savings, cash flow improvements, quality, service and/or administrative improvements.
Transactions and HR due diligence
We utilize a range of tools, techniques and methodologies to help you during all phases of a corporate transaction:
- HR due diligence: we can assist you in evaluating the EPS, tax, accounting and cash flow impacts from targeted compensation and benefits programs. We help you to identify and quantify total compensation risk and liabilities and accelerating cycle time towards integration.
- Day one readiness: after a deal has been finalized, a fast start to achieving your goals and avoiding early unplanned losses is often critical to long-term success. Key areas include talent retention, employment continuity planning, strategic messaging and integration planning.
- Deal integration: achieving your goals in any transaction is dependent on successful integration. You can benefit from our experience and methodologies so that human resource functions and management practices can deliver synergies and create a positive environment for your new organization to thrive.
