Equity compensation can be is given a bonus that is an incentive to the employee to follow the progress of the company's stock. Many employers use cash bonuses and pay rises,  but equity compensation is a more tax efficient and engaging method of rewarding employees with some significant advantages for employers as the same time. The usual method is to give equity compensation through stock option plans but employers can consider other forms of bonus such as restricted stock (which employees can sell once certain conditions have been met) and stock appreciation rights.

Equity compensation delivers to employees ownership in the company and provides them with a vested interest to ensure the company runs efficiently well - the better the company performs, the more their own equity gets! Your employees can choose to sell or transfer their equity, possibly deriving a significant bonus. Since most employees retain equity until they leave the company, employers give a bonus that continues to grow while they are working for tehm.
