Executive Compensation


Executive Compensation: Design & Training Courses

Executive Compensation is financial compensation received by an officer of a firm. Executive Compensation can include:

  • Salary
  • Bonuses
  • Shares of and/or call options on the company stock
  • Benefits
  • Perquisites (company car, golf club membership, etc.)
...ideally configured to balance the desires of the organization and the executive vs rewards for performance against government regulations, tax law, etc.

Executive compensation continues to change at a breakneck speed in response to changes mandated by the Dodd-Frank Act, new governance practices and regulatory requirements, and the increasing demands from external stakeholders.

In an age of corporate scandal and investor outrage of exorbitant executive compensation, many companies are finding their executives� compensation arrangements being carefully scrutinized by shareholders and the media.

In fact, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has asked publicly-traded companies to disclose information explaining how their executives' compensation amounts are determined. It also has posted compensation amounts on its website to make it easier for investors to compare compensation amounts paid by different companies.

How To Design Executive Compensation Plan

Because of the complexity and the number of rules and regulations involved, Executive Compensation Plan design is usually handled by an expert (or a combination of in in-house person with an outside consultant).

Though the plan must be set up to help attract, retain, and fairly compensate top management, if must also ensure the company�s well being by including verbiage on rule of employment, severance, etc. Once the design is complete, the Executive Compensation Plan should be reviewed by legal counsel, the Executive Pay Committee, and the Board of Directors, as applicable.
