The lessons of the economic crisis of 2009 and 2010 are many, but have we learnt from them, or are we plugging on using failed techniques and hoping for new and better outcomes? One of the most hotly contested areas was executive reward; Matthew Bishop in The Economist's The World 2010 writes: "too many share and share-option schemes encouraged short-termism; rewarding bosses for doing things that boosted their firm's share price long enough for them to cash in, but at the expense of investing in the long-term value of the company.
"Although it makes sense for senior executives to receive a large part of their compensation in shares of the firm they lead, to ensure their interests are aligned as closely as possible with those of the majority of shareholders, they should be required to retain those stakes until at least a year after they leave the company. If business leaders do not act decisively to redesign pay to encourage long-termism, they are likely to regret it." AstroTech's thoughtful corporate governance, financial and human resources courses encourage new thinking.
