Signing Bonuses

Keep Financial

Improve hiring with vesting cash bonuses.

Attracting and hiring top talent is extremely difficult, time consuming, and expensive. Protect that investment with signing bonuses that actually drive retention and motivation.

Retaining New Hires

Hiring & Retention Strategy

Attracting (and winning) key talent in today’s environment requires some sort of capital investment up front and a compelling compensation package. This often means employers are doling out fairly substantial signing bonuses.

Historically, signing bonuses stemmed from one-off situations exacerbated by the downfall of equity or the rising cost of living. Now, signing bonus strategies have become commonplace across multiple industries – well beyond the technology worker use case – from healthcare to pharmacy to trucking.

The Challenge

Traditional Signing Bonus Limitations


Considered a bargaining chip, traditional signing bonuses don’t support future employee retention, morale, or engagement.


HR often lack time to track the bonus collections process and enforce the contract when clawbacks are included.


Some states require these to be labeled ‘cash advance’ to ensure future clawback.
