Executive Retention Strategies

By now, we are all well aware of the high turnover rates in the employee population and the Great Resignation phenomenon. Companies have been implementing creative strategies for attraction and retention to deal with this ongoing challenge. But what about turnover at the executive level? Although not at the same alarming rates as employee resignations, executive turnover has reached new highs over the last two years. This presents a new level of concern as executives require different and more complex methods of retention. Retaining executives is critical to business success and the vehicles need to be carefully selected to meet the goals of the award.

In our featured article in this edition of NFP Compensation Insights, we explain key considerations to some of the most prevalent executive retention strategies. We hope this information is helpful in improving the effectiveness of your executive compensation programs. As always, don’t hesitate to contact us if you need expert advice on your executive retention plans.
