Item# BOD2 - Board Member Compensation Program Evaluation and Development Services
Sarbanes-Oxley and changes to SEC Proxy Disclosure rules have caused company Boards, Board Committees and Senior Management Executives to seek objective assurance that Board-related compensation programs are properly structured. Additionally, with the increased responsibilities of Board members, as well as the inherent personal liability, time commitment and expertise required, Boards are taking a closer look at the compensation being offered to directors, committee members, and chairpersons. This independent and seasoned compensation-services-only consultancy applies a 9 step consulting process to assure that the company’s Board Compensation Program meets its objectives while considering the critical factors for both the industry and company. Services for Board Compensation include:
-Current program review and analysis
-New program development
-General advisory and education
The results include defensible assurance that today’s programs do not become tomorrow’s problems.
Item# BOD3 - Board of Directors / Leadership Assessments that Link the Psychometrics to Job Specific Competencies
Most leadership assessment tools are personality or behavioral-only in nature and therefore do not relate to job-specific job competencies. This makes such tools less predictive and more difficult to interpret in terms of best -fit leaders and their personal development needs. Instead, this battery of behavioral assessments includes not only the typical soft skills assessments but also a critical thinking assessment and behavioral interviews. This consultancy works with the board to determine leadership skill requirements and builds a customized leadership assessment model. All applicants take the behavioral and cognitive assessments and complete a comprehensive behavioral interview with a psychologist. Within 48 hours, the psychologist completes a comprehensive hiring report containing an objective, professional evaluation of the leader’s past performance and expected future performance based on the soft skills and cognitive behaviors of the candidate’s role- specific requirements.
