On Monday May 23rd, 2016 at 4:30, I will participate in the following panel at Compliance Week 2016:
KEYNOTE │ THE UNSOLVABLE PROBLEM: PERFORMANCE, PAY, PRESSURE, AND MISCONDUCT
For all the talk of prudence in corporate risk-taking, and valuing ethics above the quick sale—the truth remains that pressure to achieve financial results is huge, and incentive pay is a standard tool to get employees to deliver those results. In this keynote discussion, we will explore why the “incentive trap” is so difficult to solve. What is that pressure to achieve, and that temptation of large reward, really like? How can boards set pay and ethics policies that don’t lure employees into reckless behavior and misconduct? Prepare for a vigorous discussion.
