Employers 11.30.2023 3 MIN

For three decades, we’ve surveyed companies across Corporate America on a biennial basis to uncover their executive benefit practices. Leveraging both Goldman Sachs Ayco’s corporate relationships spanning various industry segments and responses from the broader community, we compile market data from large, small, public, private, not-for-profit and foreign-domiciled companies.

This survey helps uncover trends and insights on the common incentives offered to senior leaders. The benchmarks can help companies make informed decisions around executive benefits.

In this guide, we cover:

  • What companies are offering
  • Tax treatment of benefits and income imputation
  • Considerations for maximizing company investment
  • Changes in the landscape
