“There is considerable controversy over levels of executive pay. There are a multitude of stakeholders or would be stakeholders pugnaciously striving for influence. Remuneration committees are supposed to control executive remuneration. However, as the MM&K recent survey shows, FTSE CEO Remuneration increased, on average, by 10% in 2012. Why are shareholders allowing this to happen?”
For more on strong analytics:
“As a reward specialist I am asked questions like, what is our pay inflation going to be next year? I used to go away, do research and say 2.4% – having used the historic average. Of course it was never exactly 2.4% so my boss would turn round and say – “but Ian, you said it was going to be 2.4%, you’re fired”. If asked the same question now, I respond with an answer; “there is a 50% probability that it will be 2.4%; but there is as 10% probability it could be 4%, so we should factor that in to our budget.”
My new reward podcast give a wide view over the reward landscape as well as a fascinating conversation with innovation guru and author Peter Cook.
