Executive Compensation Consulting
Create a competitive advantage. Drive long-term success.
Compensation committees and CEOs share a fundamental goal: building and rewarding high performance management teams. By aligning dynamic executive compensation design with your long-range business and talent management goals, we help you transform pay from a cost of doing business to a strategic differentiator.
How Pearl Meyer helps
companies realize exceptional performance.
Get the core responsibility right
Compensation committees must put forth an executive pay plan that attracts, retains, motivates, and rewards—and one that is fair, ethical, transparent, and clearly communicated.
Think boldly and with purpose
Consider not only the current and long-range business goals in your compensation plan design, but also how it influences your broader leadership strategy for ultimate individual and organizational performance.
Maintain an edge
Achieving financial goals, transformational milestones, and a positive culture with an engaged and high performing management team will always set you apart from the competition.
Create catalysts for change
Compensation can impact behavior. We help you ensure the right people are in the right positions and doing the right things to achieve success.
