The changing face of rewards in EMEA (part 1):

Shareholders' Rights Directive

A key aim of the Shareholder Rights Directive (SRD) is to enhance transparency and give shareholders a say on firm’s executive compensation in all EU countries. From June 2019, companies that are listed, and have registered offices within the EU, will have to provide full and transparent reporting on the pay and performance of their directors as well as a shareholder vote on their directors' remuneration policy and reporting at their AGM.

This requirement will drive unprecedented public interest and shareholder influence over executive pay. This presents a significant risk of negative media coverage and reputation damage for companies, directors and non-executive directors. However, there are steps you can take to be ready for SRD, and there is time to implement them before it comes into force. Mark Quinn, Tom Hilgers and Deborah Hall from Korn Ferry’s Executive Pay & Governance team will share their in-depth understanding of the topic and advice on how to seamlessly and effectively comply with the new regulation.

By joining the first session of the Changing Face of Rewards in the EMEA Webinar series, you will learn how to:

  • Comply with the legal requirements of SRD
  • Align your remuneration policy with your business strategy
  • Ensure that your disclosures demonstrate the effectiveness of your pay policy
  • Gauge your shareholders’ views on your remuneration policy and reporting
