Please join the NACD Northwest Chapter and Farient Advisors, an executive compensation and corporate governance advisory, on January 28th for an intimate roundtable luncheon to address the good, the bad, and the ugly of 2020. What should you expect as a board member, and how should you prepare for positive investor engagement and long-term value creation for your business?
To that end, a recent research initiative from Farient and its partners at the Global Governance and Executive Compensation Group, Seven Lessons from Engaged Investors, provides insight from 25 global investors who weighed in on where they will be laser focused over the next few years. These global investors include pension funds, asset owners, and managers, and not surprisingly, human capital management, executive compensation, and climate change topped the list.
During this session, we will use fresh case studies to explore:
What companies are doing to ensure the board is independent, diverse in skill sets and gender, and providing active oversight
Why investors and proxy advisors consider executive compensation a window into the boardroom and what this means in terms of goal setting, performance metrics, pay for performance, and overall pay levels
How investors evaluate human capital management and link talent to compensation (from succession planning to the right skill sets in the right place at the right time)
Attendance criteria: NACD compensation committee members and nominating and governance committee members only - space is limited. Complimentary registration.
