There’s one element of business that no one really thinks about until it’s too late. People don’t think enough about employee benefits when they first start their business. It seems like one of those things that will eventually work itself out, but recent changes in trends have made deciding which compensation method to use a bit more difficult.

For years, larger corporations always provided stock options; it was just what they did. Recently, many of them have stopped offering stock options in favor of more preferable benefits like higher wages or better insurance coverage. While eliminating stock options grows more popular, many experts are speaking out against this trend.

The leading expert advising companies to rethink their compensation method is Jeremy Goldstein. Jeremy Goldstein is the foremost lawyer on matters such as executive compensation and corporate governance. He knows what he’s talking about when he suggests that most corporations shouldn’t get rid of stock options.

Every company has its own reasons for eliminating stock options or just not offering them at all. Regardless of what they think, stock options may be the best choice for them if they want something more. Stock options do come with risks, every compensation method does.

The big thing to remember about stock options is that they make employees part of the company. That’s something no other method can achieve. When people feel a part of the company, that’s one thing; when they’re actually a part of the company, they may work harder to achieve greater success.

If that isn’t enough to persuade more companies to rethink about whether to eliminate stock options, then maybe they need to know who Jeremy Goldstein is. Jeremy Goldstein is a partner at the most respected and influential advisory law firm in New York.

He established that firm after working a similar firm for a number of years. Since establishing Jeremy L. Goldstein and Associates, Jeremy Goldstein’s worked on every major transaction his firm’s handled. Some of the bigger names he’s work with include Verizon, Bank One, and Duke Energy.

Now, before anyone makes any decision, it’s important that they talk with their accountant. Even Jeremy Goldstein believes that stock options aren’t right for every company. Talking with their accountants can help corporations make the right choice. Learn more: http://jlgassociates.com/

A CEO, Master Architect and editor of the most read architectural journal in the world, Robert A. Ivy has done it all. Robert Ivy is currently the Executive Vice President and CEO of the American Institute of Architects (AIA). He has over 30 years of experience in the architecture field and as a member of Alpha Rho Chi was named Master Architect by the prestigious fraternity. The Master Architect designation is reserved for the most talented and deserving individuals who have excelled and made profound contributions to the architectural field.

Thirteen high-trained and experienced architects established the AIA in 1957. The purpose of the organization was to promote and establish the architectural profession in America and around the world. Prior to the formation of the AIA the architecture profession didn’t exist. Anyone who had some knowledge about engineering and construction claimed to be an architect giving the formally trained architects a bad name and reputation. This new organization, whose members had to possess several qualifications and educational requirements could claim to be a member of the AIA, which would provide clients with assurance that the buildings would be constructed at a very high standard. Robert Ivy will carry on the AIA’s mission and uphold its prestigious name.

Robert earned his bachelors in architecture from Sewanee: The University of the South in 1969. Robert then pursued his masters in architecture from Tulane University in 1976. Robert became a member of the Alpha Rho Chi fraternity that provided several awards to brilliant and successful members including the “Master Architect” designation held by prominent figures such as, I.M. Pei, Buckminster Fuller and now, Robert Ivy.

In 1996, Robert pursued his interest in architecture and literature by becoming an editor for McGraw Hill where he remained for fifteen productive years. He quickly ascended the ranks and became McGraw Hills Vice President and Editorial Director. During his time at McGraw Hill Robert propelled the famous Architectural Record to become the most read architectural journal on the planet. For 125 years the Architectural Journal has delighted readers around the world and under Mr. Ivy’s helm it became even more popular.

As a fellow of the AIA since his college days, Robert was keen to join and lead the prestigious organization. Robert has always kept a strong relationship with the AIA even when he was working on the Architectural Record. The Record frequently advertised the AIA, its accolades and importance to the architectural field. Robert Ivy’s career is incredible and as the only member of Alpha Rho Chi to receive the Master Architect this century I think it is safe to say the AIA has found the right guy to lead them into the future.

In this millennium age, the world is faced with an unmatched wide spectrum of challenges notably in economic and socio-political circles. If such challenges are not addressed diligently by various stakeholders both from the government, quasi-governmental organizations as well as non-profit making bodies, then, the nations will stand to be grounded politically, economically and even socially.

To avert this, professional bodies have had to re-engineer their business models and concentrate more on the development socio-political and economic agenda of the nations they operate in. Such professional bodies included the American Institute of Architecture.

Founded in 1857, the Institute helps its members, and by extension, the citizens of United States of America to keep abreast with the latest trends and innovations in the field of Architecture. The body has truly set the appropriate standards for the practice by ensuring that licenses are only issued to architects that are willing to uphold the dignity of the profession.

This is fundamental to their core objective as the professional body in Architecture in the USA. Also, it arranges seminars, workshops, tours, and expos to further emancipate the architects and the interested general public on best industry practices in architecture.

On the social platform, AIA has gravitated towards fostering architectural designs that aim at seeing to it that the USA has healthier cities. Under the stewardship of Robert Ivey, the CEO, the institute has discovered that superb urban designs are the strategic arsenals to overcome the ever-rising tides and concerns of chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, and obesity.

Also, urban design is pivotal to reducing the skyrocketing Medicare bills. American Institute of Architects Report of December 2012 can attest to this. More so, AIA has a positive contribution to the community through their Community Social Responsibility programs. For instance, they sponsored the Education Facility Design Award” where they honored the best education facility this year.

Since its inception in 1857, by a clique of only thirteen architects, it has now attracted membership to a tune of more than 90,000 members. This can be attributed to strong, visionary and dynamic leadership that, cumulatively, it has given them such an enviable success.

Robert Ivy, Born in Columbus, Mississippi, is a graduate of Sewanee University and a Master Architect. American Institute of Architecture is a non-profit making professional body. Its headquarters is in Washington DC. This strains every nerve to promote the professional prowess of its members who are more than 90,000.

The microbrewery is a cherished and reputed tradition which mushroomed in the 70’s in England. It is primarily the process of formulating specially handcrafted beers, which include stouts, ales, and IPAs generally called Craft beers. This is different from commercial brewing in such a way that independent individuals who accentuate their customized style of technique, quality and flavor into their beer, manage the microbreweries. Over the last decades, Canada has had a growth in local, family-run craft brewing factories, which depict their profound love for quality beer.

 

One such talented individual in the field of craft beers is Eli Gershkovitch (http://www.montrealgazette.com/life/Gershkovitch+owner+Steamworks+brew+Vancouver+with+1948+Plymouth+Special+Deluxe+Woody+station+wagon/8035571/story.html). On his law school graduation, Eli Gershkovitch took a break before settling on a career. He, at this time, enrolled for art classes in the renowned Grenoble’s Université de Ski. Gershkovitch did not foresee that many years later he would fall in love with another field besides law.

 

Eli Gershkovitch noted that his passion and love for beer all started when he was first exposed to Belgian beer. This was after a trip to Germany’s Heidelberg to visit his microbrewery. In contrast to his anticipation, the microbrewery was not as big. As a result, he decided to start up a restaurant in Gastown, Steamworks, which is hugely successful. Subsequently, Eli Gershkovitch successfully revolutionized that corner of the town into a tourist destination.

 

His love for craft facilitated him to like and consider doing something which entails value addition, something which his law career did not allow (BeerMe). This facilitated him to put more effort to the growth of Steamworks. The firm’s pilsner and pale ale are among its brand beers being sold in numerous private liquor stores as well as 85 government liquor stores. In the British Columbia Beer Awards, Steamworks’ Pilsner was ranked position one following their wrapping of the bottle in a profoundly successful Steam World branding campaign.

 

The self-facilitated evidence of success believes to have achieved a long-term goal. According to him, Eli Gershkovitch, it is thoroughly exhilarating and similarly satisfying seeing people picking your handcrafted products from a shelf from their own satisfaction. Eli Gershkovitch notably wants to share his success with other regions in the country. This is through sustainable expansion into bigger markets, such as the Ontario province, which is renowned for its love for craft beers.
