Executive Compensation


Definition: Executive Compensation is the part of reward management dealing with the pay or remuneration of directors, officers, and executives of a firm in return for fulfilling their often complex, strenuous and important duties.
EC is typically a mixture of many components, including salary, bonuses, shares of and/or call options on the company stock, employee benefits, and perquisites.
EC should be considered as one, though very important, mechanism of corporate governance and is often determined by a company's board of directors.
