Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) July 14, 2005
The area of compensation for top executives has never been so critical. And never had more scrutiny. Yet one stark fact stands out about executive compensation Â unless your organization has an effective plan to recruit and retain the very best top executives, it has no chance to be a leading company in your field.
Business and Legal Reports, Inc. (BLR) has just published a practical guide, ÂFundamentals of Executive CompensationÂ, that explains the critical strategies that go into an executive comp program. Key sections include how to design an effective program from scratch, advice on short and long term compensation tools, explanations of supplemental benefits and perquisites, and a comprehensive discussion of employee equity ownership plans. The handbook also includes ready-to-use sample plans and model employment agreements. BLRÂs compensation editors and leading compensation agreement expert, Mitchell L. Fishberg, J.D, wrote the handbook.
Susan Prince, J.D. BLRÂs legal editor in charge of the project commented on the new Guide: ÂThe business headlines every day point out the crying need for a practical resource on executive compensation. BLRÂs new book not only explains all the many complicated issues that need to be addressed in any firmÂs program, but it also provides the model employment agreements that can save time and heartache.Â
