Anticipating High Notes and Low Notes
Executive compensation continues to be a magnet for bad publicity and mixed messages. Shareholder engagement is the most effective way to get out in front of pay, talent, and climate decisions. We encourage companies to keep communicating with investors, to provide clear disclosure, and treat transparency as a best practice in corporate governance (which it is). Poor Say on Pay votes still make headlines and the CEO Pay Ratio often encourages knee-jerk reactions from the press and other stakeholders. With new disclosures around human capital management required and disclosures on climate looming on the horizon, executive compensation will require more dedicated time from the compensation committee.
