Since compensation is an area of expertise for Jeremy, he recently addressed a major issue. Companies are using EPS to compensate their employees. This is a good idea because EPS have benefits when they are used as part of compensation. Companies that use them encourage their employees to work hard. This results to better performance in the company. They are also known to tell when investors should buy or sell stocks. Employees having EPS feel they are a part of the organization.

Unfortunately, the major shortcoming of this pay system is compromising integrity. CEOs and other executives may practice favoritism. EPS lack an aspect of collective control and this metric is easily influenced by the CEO. Since it is not wise to eliminate EPS from the pay structure, a compromise is the way forward.

Jeremy Goldstein recommends that CEOs be held accountable and they should be transparent. It will mitigate possibility of favoritism. What they do in relation to EPS can be questioned. As a result, organizations will not have scandals related to EPS. Apart from business and practicing law, Jeremy is also a philanthropist. He is particularly supporting Fountain Hope.
