OCG provides clients with innovative, performance-based approaches for evaluating, designing, and implementing executive compensation programs.
There are over one million business enterprises in the U.S. having annual revenues of $1,000,000 or more. In a national population of 300 million, there is naturally considerable competition for the best executive talent, whether for the CEO and C-level officers, or for executives lower within the organization.
OCG is pleased to serve not only large, publicly-traded companies, but also small, closely-held firms. Often we serve as the compensation consultant of choice for our clients’ boards, where we help them to offer their executives the most appropriate combinations of:
- Annual incentive
- Long-term incentive
to spur the company’s long-term success.
Although stock options have witnessed considerable abuse in their usage, we believe that options, carefully deployed, still have a place in our clients’ long-term compensation plan design, as do:
- Restricted stock
- Stock appreciation rights
- Phantom stock
- Founder’s stock
- Performance shares
- Performance units
In addition to compensation programs, OCG provides guidance in:
- Employment contracts, including “stay packages” in the event of a business turnaround or a bankruptcy proceeding
- Change-of-control agreements
- Severance agreements
