CEO Pay: Sector Analysis (Pay Differential in key sectors)
This is the time of the year when boards are called upon to fix pay levels of its members for the coming financial year. This series on CEO pay, compiled by IiAS using data from comPAYre, IiAS’ cloud-based pay-versus-performance tool, is aimed at sensitizing boards on the remuneration trends across the market, as a basis for determining appropriate pay structures. This last piece focusses on pay differential across key sectors.
Given the nature of their responsibilities, CEOs get paid higher than executive directors. However, in many of the key sectors, the CEO remuneration is more than twice of that of other executive directors. Further, promoter CEOs are paid much higher than their professional counterparts – even after accounting for stock option grants (which promoters are ineligible for). This pay differential is unjustifiable and needs corrective action from remuneration committees in the form of more equitable pay structures.
