As a specialty compensation firm, we use a top-down approach to our projects, incorporating a company’s short- and long-term goals into a well-defined compensation philosophy.
Starting with a discussion of our client’s business strategy, corporate values, operations, and key milestones, we perform an independent review of their existing compensation plans to ensure that they are competitive and structured to attract, incent and retain the key talent that the company requires to execute its strategy.
Boards of Directors are under pressure from corporate governance stakeholders and institutional investors to establish and improve their disclosure practices. We advise our clients on the most relevant issues related to their stage of development and sector. We keep our clients up to date on emerging issues relative to the governance of executive and director compensation practices, and strengthen the pay for performance relationship.
Our focus on niche markets like mining, energy, and biotechnology has allowed us to develop a deep knowledge of those industries, and provide advice specific to our clients’ needs. This approach has enabled us to build a proprietary database of information that creates reliable, cost-effective results.
We also offer a compensation survey tailored specifically to oil and gas companies with international operations — the only survey of its kind in Canada.
