  1. The best performing companies pay their CEOs relatively less

    Between 2014 and 2016, over 70% of the CEOs of Bel 20 and Bel Mid companies received a salary increase compared to a mere 46% in the smaller listed companies. The increase was the largest in the Bel 20 companies and was mainly due to variable remuneration. When the actual market data, the size, sector and profitability are taken into account, the German and English CEOs are overpaid. In stark contrast to that is the conclusion that CEOs in the best performing companies are paid relatively less and that the so-called pay ratio (the ratio of the remuneration for the CEO and the average employee) is also considerably lower in these companies.

Moreover, the competition for available talent is increasing as the baby boom generation retire in the years ahead. Employers who wish to bring the most talented young people on board – and retain them – will therefore do well to gain insights into their expectations and ambitions. Our Centre for Excellence in Strategic Talent Management has conducted its tenth survey of the expectations of young people who are entering the labour market for the first time.
