Training Overview

Why is Executive Compensation so Tricky? Discover the secrets and earn a valuable certification.

Most organizations are wrestling with executive compensation plans in 2024. As executives demand higher pay, organizations strive to reduce costs. At the same time, social justice conversations have shined a bright spotlight on pay inequity.

Executive compensation is one of the most powerful – and expensive – tools your organization has for driving performance, fostering alignment, creating accountability, and communicating priorities to stakeholders. It is subject to significant oversight by boards, in-depth public disclosure, and intense scrutiny by investors and government regulators. You must show your organization’s sound governance by responding to the concerns of stakeholders and avoiding this frequent lightning rod for criticism.
