Compensation Committees

The role of the compensation committee goes well beyond developing strategies to attract and retain the best talent. It must also handle compliance with Dodd-Frank and other regulatory disclosure complexities, and manage investor and public perception of pay-related policies and practices. BDO helps directors effectively align their compensation planning with individual performance and business strategy, especially during times of increased governmental and public scrutiny.
