As seen from the first year of say on pay, shareholders’ primary focus is performance, and pay aligned with performance. In response, companies are ratcheting up the portion of pay that is tied to performance. However, this is easier said than done. The key is setting goals that will result in the desired pay-for-performance alignment. The challenge is predicting the future as goals are being set in a volatile and uncertain market. Join a panel of experts who will discuss techniques and tools for getting goal-setting right, pitfalls to avoid, and other key learnings from practitioners like yourselves.

This webcast will explore:
• How to ensure goals reflect shareholder expectations and support sustainable shareholder value
• Tying the goal-setting process to the strategic business plan
• The role of discretion in assuring reasonable incentive payouts and differentiation of top performance
• Pressure-testing performance goals from multiple perspectives

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.
