Nothing is more critical to an organization than executive compensation. Our clients' executive compensation strategies define the values, ethics, integrity and commitment of the entire organization. Syzygy's experienced team assists public and private companies, working directly with the internal team and outside Board of Directors, from Fortune 100 companies to recent IPOs and pre-IPO start-up companies.
Executive Compensation and Benefits Syzygy consultants help our clients develop executive compensation strategies and programs that align shareholder value with executive performance and financial goals. Total competitive review and objective recommendations encompass base salary level assessment, short-term and long-term incentive packages, financial viability and SEC compliance. Syzygy also provides supplemental competitive review and recommendations on executive benefits (including perquisites and retirement/deferred compensation plans); change-of control benefits; termination benefits; variance of benefits upon termination for cause, good reason or change-of-control; and all post-termination compensation and benefits.
Board of Director Compensation Syzygy customizes Board of Director compensation programs for both public and private companies to align director pay with organizational growth, strategic objectives and outside Board member profiles. While the mix and value provided in the labor market are important to ensure competitive pay, Syzygy believes that the degree of equity, retainers, meeting fees and deferred compensation vehicles should be closely aligned with our clients' culture and the entrepreneurial spirit of their Board.
Customized Surveys Our clients often need real-time executive market information to ensure retention, recruit key hires and/or help Board committees make critical decisions while fulfilling their legal responsibilities. Published industry surveys do not capture unique markets or are months, sometimes years, behind emerging trends. Syzygy helps clients tap and gain insights into key markets. We go beyond reporting survey data by helping our clients understand and define compensation strategies and benchmark their executive pay against best-of-class pay practices.
We also specialize in Board of Directors Independent Consultation, Compensation and Rewards, Marketing and Sales Incentives, International Pay and Benefits, and Organizational/HR Effectiveness.
