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.

Listen as executive compensation professionals Steve Ross (ClearBridge Compensation Group, LLC) and Matthew A. Secrist (Taft Stettinius & Hollister LLP) bring the audience to a high-level discussion of the key executive compensation issues. Speakers will also offer top strategies for designing and reforming compensation plans to keep pace with current challenges.

This LIVE Webcast will discuss the following:

  • Recent and Notable Regulatory Developments in Executive Compensation
  • Top Strategies in Designing Sound Compensation Plans
