-- Norse Solutions is pleased to announce that the Norse Solutions Fellowship 2012 was awarded to Dr. Eric Kaarsemaker. The Norse Solutions Fellowship is a contribution to the Rutgers University School of Management and Labor Relations' research fellowship program to support a research fellowship for the academic year 2012-2013. The research fellowship was awarded to a European scholar to conduct research on broad-based employee stock ownership, including employee stock purchase plans, employee stock option plans as well as restricted and other related stock plans.
Dr. Kaarsemaker received his Ph.D. in Management Science from Radboud University of Nijmegen School of Management in The Netherlands in 2006. Dr. Kaarsemaker has previously been a lecturer in Human Resource Management at The York Management School (UK) and a post-doc at Rutgers University holding the prestigious Fulbright Fellowship awarded by the United States Government.
President and CEO Arne Peder Blix of Norse Solutions commented: “We are proud to be able to support this important work. Here at Norse Solutions, we work to make equity compensation not only a necessary and strategic part of remuneration, but also a practice that drives entrepreneurship and participation in the company as well as in the community. We believe that sharing knowledge and supporting academic research can help to better understand the different aspects of equity compensation. Further knowledge can help us and others to create better equity plans to strengthen companies”.
