Compensation is one of the most discussed items in business.  And in a family business it gets personal.  Authors Aronoff, McLure and Ward answer the some of the most important questions when it comes to the family-- what is fair pay among family members?  How do I determine appropriate pay for my child?    What should I pay my shareholders?  This book helps leaders develop a philosophy of compensation which includes salaries, benefits and perks.  After reading, leaders will be able to develop their own compensation  framework that can be applied to anyone in an organization and will relieve decision makers of the burden of developing individual compensation packages.  From determining market values to creating incentive plans- this book is essential for all family businesses.

Editorial Reviews

“Family Business Compensation has the kind of information that is very hard to get anyplace else--especially as it relates to pay in family firms.  The compensation strategies are well shaken down and time-tested with real family firms.  You don't have to go searching 16 different places to find the best thinking on family business compensation—it’s all here in one place.”  —Jim Phillip, President, Phillip's Flowers, Westmont, IL “Family Business Compensation was so good that I sent six copies to close associates...the authors provide great insight into an issue that threatens most family businesses.”  —E. Brooke Lee, III, President, LDG, Inc. Silver Spring, MD, 1999 MassMutual National Family Business of the Year
