These equity awards (also called "stock units", as opposed to "stock options") seem to be increasingly popular, perhaps because of the cleaner accounting treatment. The process is: You get some stock. Unless it's in your 401k, you'll probably have to declare the market value when you receive the grant as income. Some of these plans specify you can receive stock or the cash equivalent, at the employer's option. I'm no expert in these matters so others may be able to provide more color.
