Five Simple Steps

How does Shareworks Compensation work? Follow these five simple steps to plan and implement a complete pay strategy.

  • Input: Tell us about your company and enter your hiring projections.
  • Enter current and new hire cash and equity information into an intuitive data import, organize your company's infrastructure and fine-tune your employee hierarchy.


  • Analyze: Select a preferred data set and benchmark your workforce.
  • Compare company equity and pay to current market data on a global basis and select the best data cuts for company development.


  • Build: Decide on your compensation philosophy and realize the strategy.
  • Gain insight into the true cost of hiring and retention. Create multiple strategies and pick the right one for a competitive cash and equity plan that fits your needs.


  • Budget: Allocate increases for a perfect plan based on affordability.
  • Use development insight based on current market trends and expert 'smart hints' to allocate resources properly.


  • Report: Effectively communicate your results to approval.
  • Generate board-ready information about budget and allocation strategies or quick search to price a job and compare competitive offers.


Plan for growth.

Plan early and plan for growth. As companies are taking longer to exit, they need to plan for continued equity retention and a dwindling option pool. Avoid unnecessary risks with the right tool.
