As venture-backed companies seek to control cash burn while still seizing strategic opportunities and upgrading talent, the need for a compensation plan that supports business objectives becomes critical. Decisions made today in regard to the mix of cash, equity and incentive compensation will have a long-term impact.

On Wednesday, October 8, a distinguished panel of representatives from WilmerHale, EY, Park Square Executive Search and Harvard Business School reviewed the results of the global 2014 CompStudy survey and discussed key takeaways for technology and life sciences companies in two separate webinar sessions. 

Panelists addressed: how industry-specific dynamics within technology and life sciences are affecting compensation trends; how to structure your compensation programs effectively to keep top talent in place and motivated in today's economic environment; and how your compensation programs compare to your peers'.

Now in its 15th year, CompStudy is the most comprehensive survey of compensation for top management at private companies.
