Managing Risk in Your Incentive Plans

  • San Francisco, CA

Description: Partner Doreen Lilienfeld (New York-Compensation, Governance & ERISA), Global Head of the Governance & Advisory Group, spoke on the “Managing Risk in Your Incentive Plans” panel at the Equilar Compensation Committee Forum.

The level of scrutiny on incentive-based compensation, performance measures and pay out curves has never been higher. Metric evaluation and stress testing are critical aspects of building an effective incentive plan. In this discussion, the panel offered a holistic framework and best practices for metric selection, stress testing and how to build a risk-minded culture.
