Event Summary

Today, traditional executive pay packages are no longer enough to retain top performers and carry the business onwards. Alongside financial indicators, environmental, social and governance (ESG) metrics have also grown in significance for corporate compensation schemes. Hence, companies must refine their incentive plans to prevent competitors from hunting their key employees.

Recently, the Securities and Exchange Commission adopted the pay-versus-performance disclosure rules which impose entirely new disclosure requirements for public companies. This magnifies the need for companies to immediately prepare for the new rules and the significant changes they will create in developing reward strategies.
