Create a High-Performance Culture

The Key to Meeting Your Growth Objectives?

Transform Your Employees into Growth Partners

For your business to achieve its financial vision, you need to attract and retain high-performing employees. You also need to inspire them to think like owners.

Fostering that mindset starts with empowering employees to participate in the short- and long-term financial results they generate. If you reward their exceptional accomplishments, your company will realize exceptional gains.

That’s where VisionLink comes in.

What Business Leaders Are Saying

“We have been working with VisionLink for nearly 8 years, and we consider them part of our team. They helped us develop the compensation philosophy and strategy we needed for a period of rapid growth and structured a long-term incentive plan that works for both shareholders and executives.

The result has been nearly zero turnover. Our senior leadership team has been together for over 10 years now. I credit VisionLink with helping us create a loyal and aligned group of executives and founders who are united in working to achieve our growth goals.”

Phantom Stock Plans: The Equity Alternative

At VisionLink, we are the phantom stock experts. 
Phantom stock is becoming an essential part of compensation packages for growth-oriented businesses. We develop phantom stock plans to reward employees—without diluting equity for shareholders.

VisionLink has designed and implemented hundreds of phantom stock and stock appreciation rights (SARs) plans for many of the country’s most successful businesses. We can help you determine whether your company is ready for phantom stock, or if another long-term incentive plan is a better choice for your team.
