Fair Pay for Fair Work: Looking at Executive Pay

Fair Pay for Fair Work: Looking at Executive Pay
Monday 21st May 2018, 2pm-4:30pm
Wren Suite, St Paul's Cathedral, London EC4M 8AD

In August 2017 the government announced its long-awaited corporate governance reforms intended to address the "widespread perception that executive pay has become increasingly disconnected from both the pay of ordinary working people and the underlying long-term performance of companies."[1] In May the government is expected to table that legislation.[2]

What better time to launch St Paul's Institute's new paper entitled Fair Pay for Fair Work, kindly sponsored by Friends Provident Foundation, which offers five clear recommendations on how to make executive pay more transparent and more just. 

The objective of this event is to:

  • Review the suggested policy recommendations

  • Consider how all these recommendations fit with the government's reform programme, and

  • Reflect on how best to build investor support and engagement for these reforms.

Speakers include: 

  • Hetan Shah, Chair of Friends Provident Foundation

  • Revd Canon Edward Carter, Chairman of the Church Investors Group and Canon Theologian at Chemsford Cathedral

  • Stefan Stern, Former Chief Executive of the High Pay Centre

  • Alex Edmans, Professor of Finance at London Business School

  • Barbara Ridpath, Director of St Paul's Institute
