Compensation experts address TSR, incentives, and how to manage bad news.

Public conversations about executive compensation tend to be spurred by the media and other entities that don’t have direct involvement in the creation and implementation of payment programs. The National Association of Corporate Directors’ (NACD) annual Leading Minds of Compensation event sought to hand directors the reins to guide and shape a smart dialogue on sensitive compensation questions. The Grand Hyatt Hotel in New York City was the setting on March 3 for a slate of experts to speak to and answer questions about the latest compensation trends.

Panelists included Steven Hall, managing director of Steven Hall & Partners; Dayna Harris, vice president of Farient Advisors; Jeffrey Joyce, partner at Pay Governance; Jannice Koors, managing director of Pearl Meyer & Partners; Rose Marie Orens, senior partner at Compensation Advisory Partners; and Barry Sullivan, managing director at Semler Brossy Consulting Group. What follows are some of the most germane answers to questions asked of the panelists by NACD Directorship Publisher Christopher Y. Clark. At the conclusion of the moderated portion, the panelists fielded questions from the audience of some 150 directors.
