Oversight of human capital

Executive Compensation

Compensation Committee Leadership Network, July 2019

The workforce is changing, as is the nature of work. Hiring, training, and retaining the right people, as well as developing a strong corporate culture, are central to success. Additionally, companies must weigh and respond to investor perspectives on people and pay. In this environment, many compensation committees are expanding their mandates and working more closely with their chief human resources officer (CHRO) on talent strategy.

On June 25–26, members of the Compensation Committee Leadership Network (CCLN) were joined by human resources executives for a series of discussions about improving human-capital oversight. Members of Tapestry Networks’ Lead Director Network joined CCLN members for a dinner discussion with Carmine Di Sibio, global chairman and CEO of EY. Ken Bertsch, executive director of the Council of Institutional Investors (CII), also joined participants for a session. This ViewPoints synthesizes these discussions.
