New England Chapter In-Person Event| Pay Practices and Trends in Executive Compensation for Private Companies: The What, The How, and The Why


Privately held companies may not have the same exposure as a public company but they must follow current executive compensation trends, legislation, and best practices. While the challenges and opportunities differ for each private company it is imperative for executives and the board of directors to be apprised of the latest executive compensation developments given the need to attract, motivate and retain talent. With the increased focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues, pay transparency and pay equity and the additional responsibilities and expanding oversight of the board of directors, many privately held companies are acting on the same issues facing public companies. Shaun Bisman and Sue Schroeder from Compensation Advisory Partners (CAP) will discuss how private companies approach current executive compensation trends and issues, including the latest on pay transparency and pay equity and the difference in roles of a board member in private vs. public companies. Shaun and Sue will share stories and insights gleaned from their work with private companies. Please come prepared to share your company’s story and get ready for a robust discussion!
