Since the advent of mandatory say-on-pay shareholder votes on executive compensation in 2011, U.S. companies have been putting more emphasis on paying for performance than ever before. But, the current pay-for-performance mantra tends to mask some complex issues around pay and performance measurement.

With today’s close scrutiny of executive compensation and pay-for-performance alignment, the valuation of long-term incentive programs has important implications for a company’s compensation practices and external reporting.  To provide a deeper understanding of equity plan valuation issues and trends, Towers Watson recently launched a survey of corporate finance professionals about their organizations’ equity plan valuation and reporting practices.

In our view, executive pay should primarily reflect a company’s distinctive strategy, culture and talent context. To support this approach, Towers Watson has undertaken a global research project to understand what’s working and what’s not in the area of executive pay, as well as to establish a set of principles to help our clients navigate the challenges they face.
