It’s that time of the year again. Proxy season is wrapping up. You are probably working at one of the 98% of public companies who passed their Say on Pay vote with flying colors. Or, you work at one of the 100% of private companies that don’t worry about it. Polls and surveys usually show June and July as the slowest months of any compensation professional’s year. This is especially true for those who focus on executive compensation.
This post lays out when you may want to focus on some of the high priority executive compensation topics that must be tackled every year. You may find that making your June and July just a little busier, will make December through March so much easier.
