New York, NY, December 08, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Upcoming regulatory activity regarding executive compensation is promising to be a game changer with respect to how companies, boards, and compensation committees create and implement executive compensation packages and how they report them in their proxy disclosures. Much of this heightened regulatory activity is the result of the recent economic crisis bringing to light what many see as egregiously lucrative pay packages for companies that have either failed or needed government bailouts to survive. One thing’s for sure: Congress now has the ammunition to “lock on” and reign in executive compensation packages and practices.
This live webcast chaired by a panel of key thought leaders and compensation experts will cover the most critical issues with respect to the upcoming legislation, including the role of Compensation Committees and their impact on bonuses and incentives, developing incentives & goals for 2010, compensation plans and risk management, Say on Pay, other issues in the general economy that might affect compensation planning, H.R. 3269 (The Corporate and Financial Institution and Compensation Bill of 2009), which targets so called “golden parachutes” for executives, leaving companies and finally up to the minute regulatory updates.
Supporters and critics have lined up on both sides of the pending legislation. Some contend that it will drive capital away from US markets making them less competitive, while others hail it as a bold step in reining in runaway executive compensation packages. What’s most important to understand is that your firm must act now to in order to be ahead of the curve for 2010. And while the legislation initially mainly affects large institutions, all companies should be aware of the laws as they will create a new paradigm which will likely be the model for future compensation packages for all companies. Read between the lines: “Executive compensation reform coming soon to a company near you….”
The Knowledge Group is assembling a panel of key thought leaders and experts to help you understand Executive Compensation reform and its impact on your firm. This two-hour webinar is a must see for all professionals and companies who need to be in the know with respect to Executive Compensation Reform. The time to act is now as it’s a near certainty that sweeping reforms are on the horizon.
