    Event Summary
    The evolving business environment and the economic fluctuations prompted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic continue to affect the implementation and design of executive compensation. In its recent move to tighten regulations, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) released Staff Accounting Bulletin No. 120 which underscores a new and more aggressive focus on executive compensation issues.

    The tight labor market and the rise in employee wages which are likely to persist in the coming months highlight the need to adopt new strategies to get ahead of the competition. Thus, companies are now taking steps to monitor potential changes to their current incentive plan policies.

    This course offers an overview of the latest trends and best practices concerning executive compensation. Experienced executive compensation professionals Ken Foulks (ClearBridge Compensation Group) and Richard Liu (Hugessen Consulting) will provide the audience with practical strategies and tips to mitigate issues.

    Some of the major topics that will be covered in this course are:
    • Regulation Updates
    • Incentive Design Trends
    • Best Strategies to Mitigate Issues
    • What’s on the Horizon
