Oyster Pond Associates, LLC
Total Rewards and Performance Consulting for Dynamic Organizations
Total Rewards Strategy and Compensation Program Development

Every organization has a unique business strategy and culture.  We work with your senior management team to develop comprehensive human resources and rewards strategies that are market-competitive and support both the business and the needs of your employees .  We ask the tough questions to help you make the critical decisions about compensation and rewards programs, performance management, and leadership and career development.
Competitive Analysis and Custom Compensation and Benefits Surveys

Now that you have received the latest compensation survey, it's time to figure out what it means.  We can help you make sense of all those numbers and ensure your total compensation programs - cash, equity and benefits - are competitive.  Many of our clients take advantage of our proprietary market data tool.  It allows us to combine multiple market surveys and data cuts, and provide precise information for each job in the organization.

We also have experience in the design and administration of custom compensation and benefits surveys.  We have conducted surveys to reach targeted audiences and develop market information on topics not covered by published surveys.

Compensation and Performance Management Program Support

Oyster Pond Associates becomes your "outsourced HR department" providing services your organization needs without  having to hire staff.  Many of our small to medium-sized clients take advantage of this service.  For some clients, we come on-site on a set schedule to allow for easier planning.  For others we work on more of a project basis coordinating with annual HR cycles or regularly scheduled Compensation Committee meetings.  We are your "experts on call."
Equity Compensation Planning, Compliance & Administration

Equity compensation is an important part of many total rewards programs in life sciences and technology companies.  In global organizations, the administration of these plans can be quite complex and keeping in compliance when the rules and regulations vary from country to country can be daunting.  Oyster Pond Associates can assist not just in the design of employee equity plans, but we can provide guidance and support in ensuring compliance.  We can also assist in the selection of your outside plan administrators and tracking software.
