What Keeps You Awake at Night?
When change is the only constant, how do you know you’re doing the right things right?
Finally-after all these years, the SEC will start implementing the outstanding Provisions of the Dodd Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
This will include The CEO to Median Employee Pay Ratio slated for 2017, and the pending Pay and Performance and Clawback Provisions. What will this mean for Compensation and Discussion Analysis disclosures going forward? Over the past few years, the majority of public companies have been reporting on CEO pay and performance alignment and a growing number of companies have disclosed some type of clawback for ill-gotten gains at the expense of shareholders. Today, we see companies working closely with their advisors to engage shareholders, proxy advisors, and stakeholders to better communicate disclosures and shareholder value.
The market issues that keep executives and directors awake at night probably won’t surprise you: goal setting and risky incentives, compensation committee processes, short-termism, activist investors, managing equity, succession planning and a host of other issues. What might surprise you is how a little proactive thinking, the right information at the right time, and the right executive compensation advisor can help you align the interests of all stakeholders in a meaningful and defensible way. And, through our Partners in the Global Governance and Executive Compensation Network (GECN), we are ready to seamlessly address your challenges in more than 30 countries.
