Has something changed in your organization?
Quite often, the catalyst for contacting The POE Group is that change has occurred in your business – company growth, mergers, public offerings, executive search, fear of losing of talent or selling of the business.
When change occurs or is on the horizon, smart executives and compensation committee members know they need a partner to help them navigate corporate governance and compensation planning so that it best aligns with company goals and leadership strategy.
We bring the independent and external expertise needed when companies are building – or rebuilding – executive compensation plans and need to bring structure and strategy to their decision-making.

Turning complex data into meaningful information.
The design of an executive compensation plan is a complex process. Each facet of the firm’s regulatory requirements, financial background and company culture must be carefully considered and integrated into the design of each plan.
Our goal is to partner with our executive compensation clients to help them make informed decisions, turning complex data into meaningful information.
How can we help you meet your objectives?
Our engagements begin with gathering quantitative and qualitative information. We develop an understanding of the client’s industry, business drivers, organization, performance, and culture. Data is analyzed from multiple perspectives to provide a comprehensive understanding of a program’s strengths and weaknesses based on sound compensation design, regulatory compliance, strong governance, and pay-for-performance considerations.

Often, our review for a client will suggest the need to redesign the compensation plan. New plan designs are driven by the company’s business strategy. We prefer to work collaboratively with Management and the Compensation Committee during plan design to ensure the best results. We use an iterative approach to design, further refining the design through stakeholder feedback.
