The Expanding Board Mandate for Human Capital Management Issues
The Character of the Corporation Year-End Briefing
Wednesday, December 8 at 2 PM ET
Join Semler Brossy's Managing Director, Blair Jones, Vanguard's former Chairman and CEO F. William McNabb III, and Directors & Boards Publishing Director, David Shaw as they focus in on best practices for human capital management.
The pandemic has expanded the board’s focus on human capital management (HCM). The “great resignation” has only intensified this trend. Beyond executive succession and compensation, boards are sharpening their focus on talent strategy; diversity, equity, and inclusion; culture; employee wellbeing; and more. How are HCM issues being built into board and committee charters? Which topics are covered? What are best practices for how boards and compensation committees are engaging on HCM? How are boards allocating responsibilities and decision rights across committees, the board, and management? When is it right to include HCM metrics in incentives?
Managing Director, Semler Brossy
