Why does CEO pay get such a bad press?


What’s included in the article? 


In this article from the Armstrong Craven Review, July 2019, our expert Jon Salmon delves into the arguments surrounding CEO pay and the reasoning behind the bad press the topic gets.
In this article, Jon takes a deep look at:

  • The wider arguments circling CEO pay, beyond the headlines
  • How journalists and politicians have been convinced by flawed analysis
  • Worker representation on boards
Journalists and then politicians have been convinced by flawed analysis, and then repeated the myths that executive pay is out of control and there being a lack of correlation between executive pay and listed company performance.
Executive pay is never far from the headlines.

Given a number of high-profile corporate governance failures and the stagnation of wages for the general population, it is little surprise that the debate is high on the agenda again.
