How small and mid-sized companies can reward and retain key employees using deferred compensation.

Senior Vice President OneDigital Retirement, Phil Currie, Jr., recently published a highly informative article titled, “Hitting the Home Run in Deferred Compensation: How Small and Mid-Sized Companies Can Reward Key Employees.”

In the article, Phil examined aspects of the deferred compensation agreements of three professional athletes: Major League Baseball’s Bobby Bonilla and Ken Griffey Jr., and the National Basketball Association’s Kevin Garnett. As Phil explains in the article, “The deferred compensation agreements between many professional athletes and the teams they represent make the news because the players are fan favorites, and people are captivated by the hefty payouts involved. But deferred compensation agreements exist throughout the business world as an effective strategy to attract, reward and retain top leaders and talented workers.”

We encourage you to read the full article, available on the Fresh Thinking Blog. You can also contact Phil or any other member of our team directly to learn how organizations, including many smaller companies, can use the flexibility and customization of deferred compensation to compete for and retain the key talent they need for success.
