Matthew, based in the US, has over 15 years of experience advising on a broad range of compensation topics.
This episode focuses on how compensation committees are evolving as ESG and human capital metrics become more important to shareholders and stakeholders. A major trend is increased emphasis on human capital and employee wellness. The pandemic accelerated this trend, creating pressure on corporations to take action.
Christina and Matthew discuss the effects of this trend on how compensation committees function within organizations. The process is growing in complexity as committees now require significant data and analytics to understand performance. They also offer advice for committees undergoing this evolution in their companies.
