07 Jul '17

This week we highlight Willis Towers Watson’s 2017 Proxy Analysis of Executive Compensation. Their analysis is based on 365 S&P 1500 companies with consistent CEOs that filed proxies disclosing 2016 pay by the end of March 2017. The findings conclude that executive pay practices settled in to a new normal in 2016, characterized by modest pay increases, continued emphasis on performance-oriented compensation, and annual and long-term incentive (LTI) plan design features and metrics consistent with those of recent years.
