Council on Executive Compensation

Due to recent scandals and the economic downturn, the spotlight of public opinion is on executive compensation practices. It has never been more important for companies to practice efficient and ethical compensation, and to communicate that to stakeholders. We discuss trends, issues, and recent legislation:

  • Pricing models: lattice and Black-Scholes
  • Deferred compensation
  • FASB rules for reporting liability

Since The Conference Board’s first report on compensation 70 years ago, we have helped executives find the information they need to attract, retain, and motivate employees.

Enduring relationships with trusted peers are the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the value of council membership.
