FPL Associates provides compensation consulting services to companies in the real estate and related financial services industries. As part of our compensation services, we assist clients in the assessment, design, and implementation of compensation programs for members of the C-suite, executive/senior management team, mid-level and junior ranks, and Board. We specialize in benchmarking compensation levels, evaluating existing pay programs and practices, and designing annual and long-term incentive plans. Our vast experience in the real estate industry allows us to craft performance management and reward systems that align management interests with the achievement of strategic and financial objectives.
Critical to the success of every project we undertake is obtaining a thorough understanding of the client’s goals, operations, and organizational structure. After a comprehensive review of the historical pay philosophy, compensation practices are benchmarked against those in place within a group of comparable real estate companies and across the broader real estate industry. We then generate a report of findings summarizing all competitive benchmarking data. From here, we work with the client to recommend adjustments to compensation programs and specific incentive plan designs that support their compensation philosophy.
