Pay levels

We go deeper than traditional benchmarking approaches to get a full understanding of the position responsibilities along with other personal experience, and attributes.  This is then aligned with performance to ensure that not only target pay is market competitive, but that pay outcomes are appropriate and reflect company and individual performance over time.

Pay design

Our proven process provides a collaborative approach among key stakeholders to ensure that the programs align with business strategies, performance imperatives and stakeholder expectations.  We take a data-oriented approach that tests the potential alignment of the program relative to key performance scenarios and ensures that the right governance elements are in place.

Pay oversight

We provide comprehensive support to ensure pay and performance are aligned, programs are well communicated to participants and investors, the board and committee are operating effectively and that key stakeholders are engaged.

Special situations

We support companies going through transformations, transitions and special situations (e.g., IPOs, M&A, special awards, shareholder activists, say-on-pay challenges), and provide tailored director and management education programs.

We believe that high impact pay program design is multi-dimensional and considers the following:
