With regulators, proxy advisers and the media all continuing to stir the pot, both investors and boards are seeking better ways to align performance and pay outcomes. Clearly, the acid test of investor concerns—and of whether or not executive pay is linked to performance—is in years when their companies do not perform well. However, in the current governance climate, and particularly in the current fragile economic environment, investors remain concerned with executive pay levels even in years when their returns are high. A clear trend is developing in the method selected by companies to improve the alignment of pay and performance outcomes—the increased usage of long-term performance plans instead of traditional stock options and restricted stock awards. The increased complexity of these plans, as compared to options and restricted shares makes it critical for all those accountable to shareholders for executive pay decisions to understand the challenges they face in getting their performance plans right.

Join a panel of experts who will discuss why and how these plans have emerged as a best practice for aligning long-term pay and performance, pitfalls to avoid and other key learnings from practitioners, and how companies can focus on the positive results that are possible, including increased transparency, acceptance and trust between shareholders, boards and management.

In viewing, participants will explore...

  • Board challenges in balancing multiple stakeholder interests, governance standards, investor concerns and sound business strategy
  • Driving value creation vs. just creating pay value
  • The essentials—setting appropriate payout opportunities, timelines, performance targets and peer groups
  • Tailoring performance plan design to unique company needs for incenting behaviors that will achieve sustainable success

Audience: Board Compensation Committee members, “C-Suite” Executive Officers, Chief Human Resource Officers, Senior VPs of Compensation and Benefits, VPs of Compensation and other senior executives who are accountable to shareholders for the alignment of management pay and company performance.
