Equilar and Nasdaq recently co-hosted the Board Leadership Forum in New York and the Compensation Committee Forum in San Francisco. This feature highlights key takeaways and snapshots from both Forums.
Corporate boardrooms today are receiving greater attention from shareholders, as investors seek more transparency and accountability on a host of topics from boards. As a result, today’s boards face a seemingly never-ending set of risks, governance decisions and strategic initiatives.
With this in mind and to assist companies in building high-performing boards, the Board Leadership Forum featured panels on the new age of risk oversight, strategies for effective board succession planning and governing through regulatory uncertainty.
The goal of the Compensation Committee Forum is to help compensation committees—and the members of management who work closely with them—establish and execute a compensation and benefits program that meets both management’s and investors’ expectations.
Several expert panels discussed how the #MeToo era is colliding with executive pay, the evolving role of compensation committees and human capital management, and best practices companies should consider to enhance investor relations.
“Board members now recognize the importance of working with the press and investor community, much different than 25 years ago.”
