The latest revisions to the Corporate Governance Code are due later this month. Executive remuneration is also in the spotlight for charities at the moment. Some funders accept the need to remunerate charity leaders (and charity workers); public opinion seems less persuaded at the moment. I'll be interested to see how the revised Code is translated into the not-for-profit sector.
The level and structure of remuneration can also have an important effect on behaviour, and needs careful thought if it is to create the right incentives. Remuneration and incentives that encourage people to cut corners or prioritise short-term gains over long-term prosperity, or which leave some groups of employees feeling unfairly treated compared to others, can have a destructive effect.
