Executive Compensation Best Practices
September 26, 2013
Executive compensation practices are under enormous scrutiny from activist shareholders, corporate governance rating groups, the media, and lawmakers. This public controversy over executive pay has resulted from the failure of compensation committees to use “best practices” in establishing CEO compensation and in the failure to adequately explain to shareholders both the methodology used and the growing competition for executive talent with private equity funds.
Executive Compensation Best Practices demystifies this topic, with a hands-on guide providing comprehensive compensation guidance for all members of the board, as well as best practice guidance for compensation committee members and executives who work with the compensation committee.
