Executive Compensation Communication

Take control of the pay conversation.

How do you determine the substance, timing, and most effective way to deliver key messages about compensation to multiple audiences? The fact is every board and HR team needs a thoughtfully considered pay communication strategy.

How Pearl Meyer helps

bolster the power of your compensation program.

Clarify the links between goals and rewards

Executive compensation programs are complex. Clear communication to your leaders on the alignment between corporate goals and their pay is critical to achieving your organization’s financial and strategic objectives.

Tell your story, simply

Investors, activists, proxy advisors, employees, and the media all have questions. Helping stakeholders understand how your pay programs support effective leadership and value creation builds credibility and transparency.

Meet disclosure requirements with confidence

Regulation for public companies is only getting more complicated. A CD&A must check all the boxes and at the same time, weave a narrative that explains which numbers really matter and why.

Don’t sacrifice creativity or technical knowledge

We partner with you to identify the right communication strategy, convey your approach to compensation in a way that resonates with each audience, and delivers air-tight compliance.
