As environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues take on increasing importance, board efficiency is becoming a central issue.

How do you structure board and committee member compensation to attract members with the skills you need? How do you reflect members’ competencies and workload in a meaningful compensation package? How do you determine the right executive compensation mix to attract key talents to the top of the organization and retain them over the long term?

For more than 20 years, we have been working with boards of directors to align shareholder interests, director contributions and executive compensation with a common goal: ensuring a sustainable future for the organization.

How can we help

Before we provide you with solutions, we’ll start by asking the right questions to gain a keen understanding of your board’s unique issues. Through a partnership-based approach, we will take the time to listen and to understand.

We will then leverage our databases and knowledge to help you accurately assess your board’s practices against market comparables.

We’ll recommend a course of action that takes into account not only the cost of compensation but, more importantly, the leverage it provides to ensure your board and senior management have the key talent they need.

Call on us whenever you need to align—or realign—your governance with your strategic objectives.

When we can help

PCI Compensation Consulting can put its consulting expertise to work as soon as an issue related to the performance or compensation of your board or board committees arises.
