Are you a Danish company transitioning from a structure of Danes traveling back and forth to US, now considering putting your first set of permanent employees in US?  Even if you already have a US staff, you might value knowing more about how to incentivize your US workforce, to attract and retain the best talent.

30 members and guests joined us to learn from Mercer, Maersk, Radiometer and US companies, how to set the right levels of salary and incentives, as well as what kinds of packages exist in the different industries and company sizes. If you missed it, you can find a summary here.
