17.2 Global Plans―Common Mistakes and How to Avoid Them

Many companies operate stock plans of all shapes and sizes, all-employee or executive level, and global plans in particular pose significantly more challenges. Join this experienced panel for a practical look at the obstacles companies face with global plans. Join us and learn how to overcome common issues and what lessons to learn in the process. This panel will address important areas you should consider to ensure your company's success including topics such as: 1) Is consistency really key―does your plan work well away from home and what to do if not; 2) the decisions behind what awards to offer (incentive effect, tax treatment and stock vs. cash considerations); 3) speaking the language―when should plan documents be tailored to the local audience; 4) compliance when balancing budget and risk and 5) how to effectively and efficiently administer your plans around the globe.
