Posted in: WATSON Speaks

Rachel O’Connor, WATSON Practice Lead, Leadership & Performance, will be a web panelist on Compensation and Performance Management for Executives and Directors: Trends, Changes and Practices, a webinar sponsored by The Directors College and McMaster University’s DeGroote School of Business, on May 5, 2020.

Hosted by Michael Hartmann, Principal of the Directors College, Rachel will be joined by Christopher Chen, Managing Director of Compensation Governance Partners, to understand how practices for CEO and executive compensation, CEO performance evaluation and director remuneration are evolving – both due to COVID-19, and more generally. Rachel and Chris will talk best practices as well as in dialogue with participants, what we are seeing right now at this challenging time exploring questions like:
  • How should we measure CEO performance this year? Can we do a meaningful CEO evaluation?
  • Should we pay bonuses earned for 2019, even if we are now in a crisis?
  • How should we adjust director pay?
  • What should we do about LTI plans given our current low share price?
  • Should we change our performance (and STI) measures now, mid year, to reflect the fact the goal posts have moved?
