Tips for Maximizing the Value of Your Compensation and Benefits Package


In today’s competitive market for talent, many employers are offering attractive compensation and benefits packages. In addition to salary, bonus, and equity compensation, “softer” benefits like expanded maternity leave, flexible schedules, and wellness programs are becoming more common.

In this program, financial advisor Beata Dragovics provides tips to help ensure you take full advantage of your employee compensation and benefits. This includes:

  • Maximizing contributions to your retirement savings plan, which may include a company matching contribution
  • Allocating assets within your retirement plan to deliver the right mix of growth potential and risk management
  • Taking full advantage of equity compensation benefits, such as stock options, restricted stock units, employee stock purchase plans, and deferred compensation.
  • Choosing the right health insurance plan or health savings account for your particular circumstances
  • Ensuring that your compensation, retirement plans, and other benefits all work together as part of a cohesive financial plan
