GEO’s Global Share Plan Basics Bootcamp provided a practical introduction to global share plans. This program, specifically designed for emerging practitioners, brought together experts from accounting, tax, legal, and administrative disciplines to partner with Issuer colleagues and present attendees with a globally-focused starter pack of core concepts and real-life case studies. 

Areas covered in this track include introductions to securities law and compliance, taxation, mobility, accounting and reporting, and executive compensation. Also integrated into the program is a pragmatic overview of global share plan communications, understanding employee perspectives, administrator challenges and dealing with risk areas such as data privacy and data security. The program series is wrapped up with a hands-on Microsoft Excel session covering some of the most frequently utilized functions by share plan professionals.

Ideal candidates are in their first few years of developing a career in the equity compensation world or those interested a “big picture” basic overview of our industry. Each topic covered by our presenters focused on both the global perspective and the practical application of the concepts covered.
