The Power of Fractional Shares

Changing the Equation of Conventional Pay Practices


Presenters: Robyn Shutak and James Kelley, Computershare

Original Program Date: June 2019 (available for on-demand viewing through October 2019)

Program length: 60 minutes

According to Mercer's "2018/2019 U.S. Compensation Planning Survey," 78 percent of companies cite retention influencing their U.S. compensation decisions this year, and 73 percent point to attracting candidates. With that in mind, it may be time to rethink your compensation practices before your best talent seeks out a better employee value proposition elsewhere.

In this program, Robyn Shutak and James Kelley from Computershare will describe a new approach to your rewards program—fractional share programs. Find out what companies at the forefront of this wave are doing to incorporate fractional shares programs into both their equity award and Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP) offerings to ensure their compensation structure is competitive.

(Please note: This program has been rescheduled from an earlier date.)
