Principal Matt Vnuk will participate in a webinar on “Creating Pay Peer Groups That Will Earn Shareholder Approval”. Investors and proxy advisors have shined a light on peer group creation and benchmarking in recent years, and they want to ensure boards are using appropriate companies for comparison to set executive pay packages. There has also been criticism of the peer group process as some observers suggest it has a ratcheting effect on executive compensation. The panel will dive deeper into how companies of all sizes choose their peer groups and use them to benchmark executive compensation and other elements of company performance, as well as best practices to communicate these choices to key stakeholders.
