Executive Incentive Plans: How Leading Companies Pay for Performance

Date: Thursday, April 14, 2016
Time: 10:00 AM PT / 1:00 PM ET

Effective executive compensation programs aim to align executive pay with measures of company performance, and a well-designed incentive plan achieves this alignment through a rigorous process. Beyond performance metrics for long-term incentive plans, performance periods assigned to those awards reveal how these companies measure long-term success.

While higher-level data on the inclusion of specific performance metrics and periods is useful, plan designers require additional details to craft plans ready to withstand scrutiny and volatility in the marketplace. Join Equilar, E*TRADE Corporate Services and Pearl Meyer as we illustrate these broad trends more completely.

Discussion topics include

  • How equity plan structures and strategies differ for large- and mid-cap companies

  • Pay for performance in both short- and long-term incentive plans

  • How companies choose and weight performance award metrics

  • How stakeholders including employees, investors and proxy advisors influence incentive plans
