Stephen D. Kirkland, CPA, CMC, CFC, CFF helps employers address one of the toughest issues they face - compensating their employees. Determining the amount to pay is only the beginning. Designing pay plans that pay back and take advantage of tax benefits is just as important. Stephen helps businesses and charities design and update compensation and rewards systems, create incentives, and determine levels of compensation for their employees. This involves addressing many facets, including cash flow concerns, connecting rewards with goals, and maintaining confidentiality (when possible).
