We’re as invested in your employees as you are.

The Participant experience.

The work you do makes a real difference in the lives of your participants, because equity compensation can help them achieve goals like buying their first home, paying off debt, or financing an education. But administering your plan on top of guiding your participants through their unique journeys is a lot to juggle. We help support your participants so you can keep other balls in the air.

Ways we can help.

  • Information icon

    We help your participants understand what they have.

    Rather than simply dump stock on them, we teach your participants what they have and how they can use it to work toward their financial goals. From education and guidance to modeling calculators, we provide tools and support to make it easy for them to engage with their equity and feel confident taking ownership.

  • People chatting icon

    We’ll answer their questions (so you don’t have to).

    There’s nothing better than talking to a real person when you have questions. Our equity-trained support teams are available to answer your participants’ questions and respond to their concerns. Participants can even visit a Schwab branch and meet with us face to face to talk about their financial goals.

  • Devices icon

    Intuitive technology puts them in control.

    Schwab’s dashboard helps your participants keep track of their total financial health. They can find what they need in just one look, with all accounts easy to read in a single view. And our mobile app gives them access anytime, anywhere.

Our Participant Experience


Narrator [off-screen]: Everyone's equity compensation journey looks different . . .


A young woman who is a Stock Plan Administrator, or SPA, walks down an office corridor, past cubicles. She's carrying a cup of coffee in one hand and a manila folder in the other hand. She sits down in a cubicle.


Narrator: . . . and requires different help for where they are.


The SPA checks messages on the computer on her desk.


Narrator: But that can mean a lot of juggling for you.


The scene transitions to a close-up of her computer screen, displaying a chat window with a conversation.

Hi Elena – you can find the information you need for your equity call by logging in to [NM1] your Schwab account.


Onscreen text from client:



Narrator: We make it easy for your participants to manage their own plans, so you can keep other balls in the air.


The scene transitions from the computer screen to show a female executive in her office with a cityscape outside her window. She's multi-tasking—looking at her computer while talking on a cell phone.


Narrator: Your executives with more complicated needs . . .


A close-up of her desk calendar is shown; on it is a handwritten note that says, "Upcoming Trading Window," which she circles.


Narrator: . . .and less time to take care of them . . .


Then the screen on her office phone flashes "Incoming call, Charles Schwab." She picks up the receiver to answer the phone.


Narrator: . . . can get help from our equity specialists . . .


The scene transitions to the hallway outside her office, looking back in through the window. She sits at her desk and talks on the phone.


Narrator: . . . who are experienced with restricted trading, portfolio analysis, and financial planning to help maximize assets.


A young man walks by the executive's office to his cubicle. The SPA meets him at his desk and hands him a manila folder.


Narrator: Easy-to-follow instructions help your new employees set up their account online.


The scene transitions to a close-up of the computer screen on the man's desk, where the Schwab Equity Award Center welcome screen displays. On the screen is a button that reads, "Open an account."


The Equity Award Center is where all your employees—both domestic and international—can find educational resources . . .


Zooming in closer, a cursor arrow moves to and hovers over an "Education" tab.


Narrator: . . . to help them understand your plan and their options.



The scene transitions to a coffee shop, where a bearded young man wearing glasses and a flowery shirt sits at a table, looking at a laptop screen. In his hand is a coffee cup with a green, eco-friendly looking logo. Around him, other customers are drinking coffee or looking at laptops.


Narrator: Their dashboard offers a bird's-eye view of their equity . . .


A close-up of the man's laptop screen displays, showing his Schwab dashboard and all of his accounts and positions, including Stock Slices®.

Narrator: . . . as well as other accounts they may have, like checking, trading accounts, and personalized investments . . .


The scene transitions to a street view of the coffeeshop. Through the window can be seen the man in the flowery shirt, looking at his laptop. Above the window a sign says, "Eco coffee," and next to the coffee shop door is a sign that reads, "Save the Planet!


Narrator: . . . in the things they're interested in.


A woman on a bike passes by.


Narrator: On our mobile app, they can accept grants, receive statements . . .


The scene transitions to the biker, just as she has gotten off her bike and is looking at her cell phone.

A close-up of her phone shows she is checking her Schwab account.

Narrator: . . . and even place commission-free trades from wherever they are.


The scene transitions from the phone to a collage of the several people who have appeared in the video so far: the woman on her bike, the young man in the office, the executive in her office, the man in the coffee shop, and, in the center, the SPA at her laptop.


Narrator: And automatic reminders let everyone know of key events, like upcoming vesting dates, blackouts, and expiring options. Because a good experience for them can mean a good day for you.


A close-up of the SPA now takes up the whole screen. She shuts her laptop and closes her eyes, a satisfied look on her face.


Narrator: Let's chat about how Stock Plan Services can make your life easier.
