The authoritative guide to executive compensation--updated for today's business environment

The Complete Guide to Executive Compensation has long been recognized as the guide to executive pay. Now in its third edition, The Complete Guide to Executive Compensation has been fully updated to address important changes regarding venture capitalism, boards of directors' responsibilities, shifts in stakeholder power, and laws like the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act and healthcare reform. It includes appendices of selected laws, Internal Revenue Code sections, IRS revenue rulings, SEC actions, accounting interpretations, a bibliography of selected books, DJIA history, and a glossary of more than 2,000 definitions.

The Complete Guide to Executive Compensation covers:

  • Critical-to-know executive pay elements: salary, employee benefits, executive benefits, and long- and shortterm incentives
  • The difference between current and deferred compensation, including statutory requirements
  • The role of the board of directors and its compensation committees, along with the influence of the major stakeholders
  • Various performance measurements of the income statement, the balance sheet, and the cash flow statement that are used in incentive plan payouts

The Complete Guide to Executive Compensation addresses a wide range of needs. Consultants and in-house pay designers will find detailed examples that will trigger their own creativity, supplemented with more than 400 figures and tables. Boards of directors and compensation committees will benefit from the definitions and descriptions of various pay plans and the conditions under which they would be appropriate. Executives will not only better understand their own plans, but also those they may only have heard about, as well as many that have not yet caught their attention. Shareholders, legislators, and others will turn to it again and again as their go-to desktop reference book. Professors and students will be privy to invaluable insight they can find nowhere else.

The Complete Guide to Executive Compensation provides everything you need to gain the edge in the war for recruiting and rewarding executive talent.
