With many start-ups preferring to allocate their cash towards the development of the product or service, this leaves limited capital to offer potential employees as a incentive to join their companies to grow their innovative teams during the hiring process, it’s becoming increasingly popular of offer a candidate equity. Employees might acquire equity compensation in the form of non-cash compensation. Options, restricted stock, and performance shares are examples of equity compensation; all of these investment vehicles indicate employee participation in the company. Employees can partake in the company’s profits through appreciation, which can encourage retention, especially if vesting restrictions are in place. A below-market pay may be accompanied by equity compensation at times.
