  • Base salary
  • Allowances
  • Per Diem Rates
  • Bonus Eligibility and Payment Amounts

Incentive Compensation
Having an incentive strategy is critical to aligning employee compensation to business drivers. The Wynford Group are experts in developing:

  • Variable pay for performance strategies
  • Performance-based incentive and total rewards programs
  • Sales compensation
  • Employee Share Purchase Plans, Profit-Sharing and Gain Sharing Plans
  • Long-term Incentive Plans (LTIPs)
Why LTIPs Can Work for Your Organization
Long-Term Incentives could be the missing component to your organization's total rewards strategy. The benefits of having LTIPs include:

  • Aligns the rewards of your key executives to the long-term goals of your organization.
  • Enables your executives to be rewarded for their measurable contribution to the achievements of the organization.
  • Provides an alternative to Share or Option Plans for rewarding executives for long-term performance.
  • Rewards specific performance results that can be influenced by executives therefore avoiding the issues of linkage to stock price alone.
All of our cash-based LTIP strategies are uniquely designed to fit your organization, with the common focus of driving and rewarding executive performance to achieve the long-term goals of your organization.
