The Compensation Committee Handbook 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
RolfDobelli More than 1 year ago
Anyone involved in compensation issues will want to keep this handbook nearby. The author wrote it mainly for directors who serve on the compensation committees of publicly traded firms. But the book raises issues and advocates practices that many company managers should consider. Though much of the book is quite technical, this basic survey of compensation issues is appropriate for a broad professional audience. getAbstract recommends it as a good first step toward more equitable and effective pay practices.
