Compensation Advisory Partners Releases Guidebook for Corporate Board Compensation Committees

A Practical Guide to Compensation Committee Service: Lessons from the Field Addresses Key Aspects of Committee Service to Help Board Members Learn From the Experience of Others

The focus of A Practical Guide… is twofold – to address the key aspects of Compensation Committee service and to promote an understanding of how effective Compensation Committees structure their activities to effectively address their responsibilities. 

“We wrote this book to provide Compensation Committee members with information to help make them more effective in their role and make their job a little easier,” said Eric Hosken, Partner at Compensation Advisory Partners and lead author of the book. “We believe that when compensation programs are done right they provide the company with a valuable management tool that can help attract and retain top talent, focus management on driving the long-term performance of the company and effectively align the interest of management and shareholders.”

The guide was developed based on interviews with current and former Compensation Committee chairs at major U.S. public companies, as well as the more than 100 years of Compensation Advisory Partners’ combined experience as consultants advising Compensation Committees on all aspects of executive and director compensation.

“Our thoughts were informed by conversations with Compensation Committee members that have particularly impressed us over the years, as well as our experiences observing committees in action as consultants,” said Hosken.

“We try to avoid going too deep into the technical weeds of executive compensation and instead focus on the mindsets, activities and processes that lead to successful Compensation Committees,” added Hosken. “Our hope is that A Practical Guide to Compensation Committee Service: Lessons from the Field, will serve as a go-to reference for Compensation Committee members for years to come.”

The book is available as a free download for e-book readers, such as iPad, iPhone, Android devices, Kindle, Nook, and other e-readers at https://www.capartners.com/book.
