Compensation Committee Best Practices | Women in the Boardroom

Recorded Webinar

Compensation Committee Best Practices

Among the key responsibilities of board members is the compensation of executives, during the recruiting process and then in evaluating and rewarding performance.  The oversight of compensation by boards has developed significantly, with compensation committees often engaging independent advisors to assist them in this important role of the board.  Our panel of experts will discuss how compensation committees can employ “best practices” in fulfillment of this important board responsibility, and will also discuss the sometimes sensitive topic of board compensation.
