Don't quote me

Executive pay has never really left the spotlight. However, in today's straightened times, it's a very hot topic especially as executive pay of quoted companies is rising much faster than the pay of workers. And so the Government has recently published a discussion paper that looks at the issue of executive pay.

The paper examines the current pay landscape and looks abroad to see how other countries manage the situation. It then offers possible solutions including greater openness in pay, how pay and performance are linked, pay across an organisation and the process for setting pay.

It's quite likely that shareholders will be given more powers over setting of executive pay.
