Equity Compensation 101 for Participants

To assume that the stock plan participants at your company come to the table with a basic knowledge of equity compensation would be an irresponsible assumption.  Even the most straight forward of equity award plans can be complex to employees.  Ensuring that your participants are armed with a base line of equity knowledge, including key terms and an understanding of the value of equity, will lay the foundation for clear communication throughout the life of the grant.

This educational resource from TD Ameritrade is just one of many examples.  The video explores the basics of equity compensation and provides stock plan participants with a high-level overview of award types, a brief explanation of plan documents and an illustration of the importance of playing an active role in managing your equity awards.
