Today we look at a few common business and legal expressions that contain the adjective “golden”. When we use “golden” it gives the idea that something is fortunate, favourable, prosperous, or abundant. For example
Golden handshake: This is generous financial compensation or a severance package (accordo di liquidazione) that is given to a senior executive (dirigente) or employee upon their departure from the company.
Golden parachute: It is a financial arrangement that guarantees substantial benefits or compensation to top executives in the event of a takeover (acquisizione) or merger (fusione), often including stock options (opzioni azionarie) and other perks (vantaggi).
