Session Format
Target Attendee Experience Level
Intermediate: Hands-on and Practical Application

Compensation structure and delivery decisions have traditionally been made by employers. At Shopify, we tend to challenge traditional business practices, so last summer we launched Flex Comp: the first-ever compensation model that lets our employees choose how they get paid with custom combinations of salary, stock options and restricted stock units. We’ve seen such high adoption of this model that we’re expanding compensation choices to include additional benefit programs. Join us to learn how flexible compensation could help your organization!
