Goldstein explained that he is shocked by employer’s decision to end the offering of stock options to employees. Goldstein goes on to explain a new method of stock offerings that offer far more advantages than traditional stock options. This method is called knock-out options.
There are several disadvantages to keep in mind before you offer stock options though. You must be confident of your company’s growth potential. If your company isn’t doing great, then your employees may become less motivated; if your company is continuously growing, then your employees may experience a growth in morale and begin to work harder.
Sometimes employees simply don’t trust stock options as a payment method. Employees know what a recession can do to the stock market, sometimes over night. It may be a hard sale to convince employees to accept stock options instead of cold, hard cash.
Knock-out options can eliminate much of the worry on the employee side though. A knock-out option is a stock that is capped at a certain level. This type of stock may provide limited growth but it also provides a clear exit strategy for employees. Employees know that once the price of a stock hits a certain price it is time to sell. Knock-out options can also work to eliminate the necessity of personal stock advisers, which would be hired out of pocket by employees. Sometimes these advisers charge more than the profit you’ll make on stocks.
Knock-out stock options are a great way to offer stock options to employees. This is an option for employers that wish to offer alternative compensation methods without worrying or confusing their workers. Learn more: http://www.bizjournals.com/newyork/potmsearch/detail/submission/6423046
