Enhancing compensation committee performance and shareholder communications

November 2017

While compensation committees at large public companies share similar objectives, they often take different paths to achieve success. Whether in the way members prepare for and run committee meetings, evaluate their own performance, or structure their public disclosures, each compensation committee faces an endless string of choices as it addresses the issues on its agenda.

On October 3–4, 2017, Compensation Committee Leadership Network (CCLN) members discussed how they, as compensation committee chairs, approach the job and shared ways in which they have been able to improve their own performance and the performance of the committee. They also engaged in a conversation about the best ways to communicate the results of their work. This ViewPoints presents highlights of CCLN members’ conversations on these topics.
