Wealth in Waves Ep 16: Golden Handcuffs

Wealth in Waves Ep 16: BOSS 2.0: NQ Deferred Comp

You’ve done a great job of establishing your business, and as opposed to the “old” days where you literally had to do everything, you’ve developed an employee or maybe even a handful of employees that, while they can’t do everything you can do, they excel in certain parts of your business, possibly even as a key driving of profitability. Maybe it’s a highly productive salesperson that provides a significant portion of your revenue. Maybe it’s an office manager that handles all of the daily details and allows you to focus on what you do best, which is growing your business. You get the idea. Now imagine that person walking in the door today and letting you know…that they have decided to pursue other opportunities. Maybe even with one of your competitors. What do you do? Throw more money at them to get them to stay? You probably already gave them a raise and cash bonuses, but it wasn’t enough. How will your business adapt to losing what is commonly called a “key-person” employee? 

What if I told you there is was a way to get ahead of this scenario? A way to keep your key employees loyal that is stickier than just throwing cash bonuses at them? That didn’t require you to do the exact same for ALL of your average rank and file employees? A way that gave you some element of control and came hand in hand with requiring that key person to stick around for a number of years to reap the full benefit of your generosity?
