Executive & Director Compensation Beyond COVID-19

When an organization faces uncertain times, such as the current COVID-19 pandemic has presented the world, executives and directors serving on the board of directors are often required to work longer, harder and more hours than when times are "normal". Ensuring that the board has approved appropriate and fair executive compensation is critical, and the quickly approaching 2020 bonus season, which is often done in the first quarter of 2021, will be presenting major social, economic and strategic challenges.

Join Paul Gryglewicz, Head of Canada and Senior Partner for Global Governance Advisors as he engages attendees with questions and provides timely comments on where executive and director compensation is seemingly heading into 2021. Paul will frame the discussion around:

  • Base Salary trends;
  • Annual bonus plan design modifications;
  • A board's approach to applying discretion to bonuses;
  • A board's approach to long-term incentive grants in volatile capital markets or private companies;
  • Engaging and communicating effectively with shareholders on compensation and governance matters
