Just when executive compensation was starting to settle down after the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, another upheaval has forced committee members to adapt yet again. The 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act had a significant impact on executive compensation and reporting. This Fourth Edition of The Compensation Committee Handbook includes vital information that compensation committees need to stay current with Dodd-Frank and other new accountability requirements.
In addition to legal compliance, compensation committee members need to address a growing range of functional issues such as organizing, planning, evaluating executive performance, negotiating change-in-control arrangements, and beyond. The rapid changes in the role of the compensation committee can leave organizations reeling. The Compensation Committee Handbook defines the latest responsibilities and standards related to compensation, while recognizing that there is no single "correct" model for executive pay that will fit every business organization.
The strategy board members assign incentives needs to align with each specific case, but the standard approach has evolved almost as rapidly as the regulatory landscape. This handbook identifies the best practices that reflect the most current understanding of issues related to compensation. Since the Third Edition was published in 2007, regulatory and theoretical changes have altered the way this committee should and must approach compensation. In this updated edition, the authors strive to remind readers of both the general and technical determinants of good compensation committee decision-making.
Bits and pieces of wisdom from business and academic publications can be difficult to synthesize when it comes time to discuss numbers. The Compensation Committee Handbook is a valuable reference because it comprehensively addresses all the relevant issues. This book's issue-oriented approach is adequately comprehensive to target any compensation discussion. The Compensation Committee Handbook, Fourth Edition will help all compensation committee members, as well as executives, human resource officers, and general counsels, succeed in turning complex technical information into sound business judgment.
