Offering stock options has always been a way for corporations to invite employees to join the company in a more meaningful way. This option seems to be a win-win for both the company and the employee, as both can reap benefits from the company’s success. However, some concerns have risen that make this method of compensation seem less viable than it once was. Examples of these issues are the sudden drop in stock prices, leaving employees with nothing of value, or the added administrative cost incurred in the management of these programs. However, the potential benefits are difficult for many people to ignore. Some suggestions have been made that a knockout option would provide the best middle ground for companies and their employees.
