Cash is King. Who are the rest of the royals?

Dan Walter, Performensation

the mighty kingdom of compensation, cash is king. Cash holds this majestic
position through a family line that stretches back hundreds, if not thousands,
of years. Like any monarch, King Cash has a retinue of supporters, all with
their own long histories and stories of power.

will be providing a new series of posts on Payscale’s Compensation Today blog.
These posts will be focused on explaining the King’s court as well as the strategies,
tactics and technical aspects of how to best use these players in the game of
chess that is total rewards.

specialize in High Performance Compensation? with a focus on equity, executive
and performance-based compensation programs. On Thursday November 15, 2012 and the third
Thursday of every month thereafter you can read a post about how to do more, or
have less problems with, these types of programs. The posts will be short and
lean to the irreverent.

compensation professionals have not had a chance to work extensively with
non-cash alternative compensation systems. Beginning December 6, 2012 and on the first
Thursday of every month following I will explain a different equity
compensation instrument. This list includes the foundations of ISOs, NQSOs, Restricted
Stock, RSUs, Performance Units, ESPP and much more.

look forward to discussing these topics with you. Look for the postings and accompanying Stickman
images and please become part of the conversation.
