Compliance is Only the Ante, Your Strategy is the Winning Hand

The Dodd-Frank Act continues to create a steady stream of new proposed regulations for executive compensation disclosure. Meanwhile, the SEC is under increasing pressure to finalize a number of these proposals—including the most recent on pay vs. performance—and may do so effective for the 2016 proxy season. How can Compensation Committees maintain laser focus on aligning compensation with business strategy while also following compliance mandates that could be at odds with their business-based approach? The key lies in early preparation.

Join NACD and Pearl Meyer & Partners on August when we will provide recommendations on how to navigate the new wave of potential disclosure requirements while ensuring that your compensation strategy continues to support value creation for shareholders.

We’ll discuss how to:

  • Model and analyze the data required for the new pay-for-performance disclosure;
  • Determine where or whether this data intersects with the company’s current compensation strategy and performance metrics;
  • Use this data to look ahead to your 2016 compensation planning and determine how to evolve your pay programs;
  • Develop a thoughtful shareholder communication plan that meets the proposed disclosure requirements and at the same time clearly explains the larger context of pay alignment with the company’s business strategy.
