One of the ways we align management interest together with shareholder interest is using ESOP.

However not all personnel play a direct role in creating value in their business unit and company and offering options may not be an (perceived)incentive to them.

How would you structure compensation in order to achieve optimal incentives for this category of employees using the tools in the arsenal?(e.g stock options, restricted stock, SARs & ESPPs)

very insightful .. SB'ed.
It is surprising how many big firms have the same person as the chairman of the board & CEO.. One would think it would be illegal by now. I suppose corporate governance still has some more ground to cover..

What are your thoughts on executive compensation consulting firms? Do they add any real value?

Jun 26, 2017

I work for one. Very minimal real value add.

Great write up, Professor. Interesting analysis, I'm curious to see where the conversion around CEO pay will head in the future.

Only people with skin in the game who have some basic understanding of the peculiarities of a given organization should comment, be concerned with or bitch about a given organisation's CEO comp. Armchair critics should be very politely invited to fornicate themselves with a loaded blunderbuss.
