10 Best Practices for Granting Global Equity Awards
This presentation will provide participants with "10 Best Practices for Granting Global Equity Awards" answering questions such as:
- Why does a "global" award agreement makes sense?
- Where should companies on a budget focus their compliance efforts?
- How can I keep track of the tax withholding requirements for equity awards in 40 countries?
This session will provide practical (and often inexpensive ways) of managing global equity grants.
