A company’s board sets the business direction and regularly reviews the strategic progress. On this basis, the annual budgets and performance targets are set, it is ensured that the remuneration arrangements effectively contribute to the implementation of the corporate strategy and actually reflect the performance delivered in each case.
By definition, the compensation committee is responsible for the appropriate design of the compensation policy throughout the company as well as for the target-oriented compensation of the executive board. The compensation committee is responsible for the development and implementation of the general compensation principles as well as for their successful application and submits recommendations to the full board of directors accordingly.
A sustainable compensation system creates a framework that motivates employees to excel and also rewards company performance as well as individual performance in a balanced manner.
In this seminar, which is primarily designed for current and nominated members of the board of directors as well as CEOs, company owners and entrepreneurs, various potential problem areas in individual topics of the compensation committee will be examined in a practical manner and pragmatic approaches to solutions will be presented.
Main topics of this seminar
- How does the board of directors cooperate and interact with the compensation committee?
- How can the collaboration between the compensation committee and the CEO, CFO and Head of HR be characterised and optimised?
- What are the exact tasks of the compensation committee and to what extent are they fulfilled?

Based on their many years of experience and daily insights into the working methods and remuneration systems of numerous companies and organisations in a wide range of industries, the remuneration experts at klingler consultants repeatedly find that there are very different implementation practices of the Ordinance against excessive remuneration in companies listed in the Swiss Performance Index with regard to executive and board remuneration. There is often a lack of clarity and a remarkable uncertainty in these issues.
When it comes to aligning or preparing companies for today’s and tomorrow’s business needs from a remuneration policy perspective, competence in the compensation committee is crucial. Only professionalism and a sound market knowledge in all areas of remuneration strategy combined with practice-oriented know-how and best-practice expertise lead to sustainable success!
