Executive compensation has become a flashpoint issue for board members, institutional investors, regulators, and the media. Compensation committees are challenged to design compensation programs that not only tie business or corporate strategies to company performance, but also motivate top executives and valued employees. At the same time, committees must address investor expectations for what is appropriate against a backdrop of heightened regulatory activity and public awareness.
You and your peers from a variety of industries will move beyond examining what creates problems in compensation arrangements to structuring more effective plans that drive long-term corporate performance, company profitability, employee satisfaction, and exceptional success. The program helps you rethink your approach to measuring and rewarding outstanding performance.
The intensive curriculum helps you focus on the formulation of plans that link executive rewards to company goals, while addressing the increased public attention paid to compensation issues. You also will learn how to design and implement more effective processes to guide committee activities.
This leadership development program is intended primarily for directors on boards of large established companies who serve as chairs or members of compensation committees and for senior corporate executives. Bank directors, chief executives, directors of human resources, investors, legal professionals who help structure employment contracts, and senior regulatory officials charged with implementing legislation also are encouraged to apply.
Programs, dates, fees, and faculty are subject to change.
