Equity compensation for employees is flourishing. Companies use equity to reward their people, cultivate loyalty and minimize turnover. In recent years, grants of restricted stock units (RSUs) have become the most common type of equity award surpassing stock options.
Employees receive RSUs thorough a vesting plan and distribution schedule that’s based on achieving certain performance milestones or employment for a specified length of time. Vesting plans can be confusing. Financial planning and taxation of RSUs can be tricky. It’s best to work with trained professionals to make sound financial decisions.
