Compensation Committee

Setting the Stage

 We advise compensation committees on how to maximize their effectiveness within the standards of good governance. It’s all about laying the groundwork for what comes next.

Best Practices Start Here

Farient believes that a key role of compensation is to focus executives on those factors that will have the greatest impact on creating value for stakeholders. We believe compensation programs need to be both tailored to the company’s business strategy and in keeping with best practice norms. Program measures and goals should be transparent and readily explainable to shareholders and other stakeholders.
