What Your Executive Compensation Plan Is Missing

It’s that time of year again: time to revamp your executive compensation package to create a powerful concoction that can recruit top talent and keep key players happy.

First off, let’s touch on what usually goes into an executive compensation plan.

  • Base Salary
  • Bonuses (short term incentives)
  • Long term incentives
  • Benefits
  • Perquisites

Each aspect is important and should be given appropriate attention. But there is one perk that sometimes takes the backseat that should really be brought to the forefront. Instead of primarily concentrating on stock options or a cool company car, focus on the #1 benefit employees care about: healthcare insurance.

It’s understandable to be wary of this benefit. With rising healthcare costs and increasing ACA regulations, it’s becoming more and more difficult for employers to provide the rich health benefits that employees care so much about. Let’s change that.

Executive medical reimbursement is still possible, and it’s perfect for executive compensation packages. It will save employees more money than a bonus will give them. You see, it’s not direct compensation, but the compensation power lies in the money that it reimburses and saves your employees from spending out of their own pockets. It’s more powerful than a simple pay increase. Plus, it benefits their families, too.

The financial efficiency of executive medical reimbursement is a perk for your company, as well. The cost is actually less than what you’d spend on a similar bonus. So, you spend less and receive more value to offer executives. It’s also a benefit that’s difficult to duplicate. Some aspects of executive compensation plans can be matched by your competitors, but the far-reaching value of an executive medical reimbursement plan is beyond compare.
