Details & Time Frame
Focus On Pay-For-Performance: 2011 Wall Street Journal/Hay Group CEO Compensation Study
In the year after most companies faced their first say-on-pay votes, how did companies respond? Did they adapt and move to more pay-for-performance structures? And how did shareholders react? The answers will surprise you.

The results from our 2010 study suggested that more company boards are starting to plan for that rainy day where shareholders do not have such strong years. The focus in 2010 was more on the structure of their executive pay programs, in the hopes that they will achieve alignment between future performance and future pay outcomes when performance isn’t as strong.

Will these trends be continuing? Where the focus in the boardroom will remain on the key features and elements of the pay program, including those that directly impact pay-for-performance outcomes – setting performance goals, use of discretion vs. formulas, choices of equity vehicles – as well as those that are more optical in nature – like the presence of perquisites, severance & change-in-control provisions, and stock ownership guidelines.

Will shareholders continue to evolve as evaluators of pay outcomes, by developing more of their own tools and philosophies to assess these areas? As they take on greater accountability in these discussions, we look for shareholders to place less emphasis on the opinions and analyses of the shareholder advisory groups. As a result, effective shareholder communication – through public disclosures as well as through direct outreach – will only become more important for all companies to consider. Companies themselves are evolving in learning who their largest and most influential shareholders are, who they listen to, and how they tend to vote on these issues.

In this session, participants will gain an insider's look at the newest executive pay information for 2012, and what to expect for the rest of the year, as we present findings from The Wall Street Journal / Hay Group 2011 CEO compensation study. The study results will be 'hot off the presses', covering the latest CEO pay information on 300 of the largest US-based public companies.
