Company Managed, Every Step of the Way

TUX allows companies to affordably retain talent and recruit in bearish markets.

Market volatility not only impacts employee security but also hampers companies' ability to attract and retain top talent. When stock values drop, companies are pressured to enhance equity compensation packages significantly to combat these issues —by up to 30%, costing on average an additional $150 million annually.

Attract and Retain Top Talent

A common assertion is that people quit managers, not jobs, but a primary instigator of job-seeking behavior is actually the perception that compensation is unfair. Better benefits lead to better employee retention and satisfaction!
