For the past 16 years, we have published the Corporate Governance & Executive Compensation Survey—an invaluable resource for anyone interested in corporate governance and executive compensation best practices.

Corporate governance and executive compensation practices of public companies continue to draw intense shareholder scrutiny and regulatory focus, and our annual survey of the nation's 100 largest public companies provides important benchmarking information in these critical areas.

This year's Survey considers corporate governance topics that have emerged as key board-level issues, including:

  • Corporate culture
  • CEO pay ratio
  • Cybersecurity
  • Sexual misconduct
  • Board diversity

The Survey also examines the evolution of topics we have reviewed in prior surveys, including:

  • Proxy access
  • Shareholder engagement
  • Shareholder proposals
  • Director compensation
  • Shareholder activism
  • Governance practices of newly public companies
