Overview

Board Nomination and Remuneration Committees – Trends and Outlook

Organised by the INSEAD Corporate Governance Centre (ICGC) in collaboration with Eric Salmon & Partners


As the business paradigm continues to evolve at accelerating pace, boards of directors are under immense pressure to reflect on how they can effectively organise themselves and their C-suite to better address the growing complexities in the business landscape amid waves of disruptions and emerging risks. Increasingly, the nomination and remuneration committees have come under the spotlight as investors, proxy advisors, shareholders, and broader community of stakeholders expect greater accountability and transparency from top leadership on business governance.

Board nomination committees need to identify the systems, tools, and processes for recruitment of new board members with the right fit to the organisational mission and corporate strategy, with considerations for new competencies and skill sets. Likewise, the remuneration committees need to position executive salaries and compensation packages to find balance in the pursuit of purpose, impact, and performance which includes integrating sustainability factors in the incentive structures aligned with corporate objectives in the short, medium and long term.

So how are the two nomination and remuneration committees adapting and changing their practices in the face of a constantly evolving environment?

Organised by the INSEAD Corporate Governance Centre, in collaboration with Eric Salmon & Partners, the Webinar and Digital Dialogue will unpack the insights from the joint research study focusing on “Board Nomination and Remuneration Committees – Trending towards Convergence or Divergence?” where we will delve into the workings of the two committees, examine their changing structures, functions, and strategies employed to address emerging risks and identify the key enablers that contribute to better decision-making.

Join us for an interactive exchange, as we showcase the research highlights presented by Jose-Luis Alvarez, Senior Affiliate Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD and Visiting Professor at Harvard Business School and Hagen Schweinitz, Practice Leader, Global Board and Governance Advisory Practice at Eric Salmon & Partners, following by fireside chat with a guest speaker who will comment on the findings and share experience and observations on the synergic role and practices of nomination and remuneration committees for effective governance.
