No, that’s no my picture – I wish I were that young and good looking; but he does look like a happy executive who’s worth keeping…. a key employee!
Key employees don’t have to be executives. It can be anyone who is valuable to a business, particularly a small business that has to compete to attract top talent – and keep them from jumping ship to join a larger competitor or to start their own business in competition with you (trying to enforce non-compete agreements is no fun and costs far too much time and money, not to mention lost opportunities).
Small business owners often aren’t established enough to offer expensive benefit packages, but they want to find a way they can offer the right incentives to benefit their top people.
You might be interested in learning about the REBA, or GEBA, as some call it. It’s a Restrictive Executive Bonus Arrangment, or Golden Executive Bonus Arrangement.
They’re pretty simple to set-up and can be designed to provide flexibility for the owner.
