Research: The power and pitfalls of executive reward: a behavioural perspective


This report from the CIPD looks at executive rewards in the UK and beyond to explore to what extent current reward structures encourage the right kinds of chief executive characteristics.

The report:

  • Shows that the gap between CEO pay and other employees pay continues to increase
  • CEO reward practice has hit crisis point
  • Asks how CEO reward practice needs to change in the future
  • Suggests that CEO pay needs to become more evidence based and underpinned by more holistic metrics.
