The type of retention incentives used depends primarily on the type of deal. For example, organizations are more likely to provide retention incentives when involved in an acquisition than a divestiture. More than half (57%) of organizations reported that executives critical to long-term success are always eligible for retention incentives. However, for a typical divestiture, only 44% reported that these executives are always eligible.Retention incentives also vary from country to country. According to the survey findings, US and Canadian organizations provide larger retention incentives than organizations in Europe and Asia Pacific when viewed as a percentage of base pay.
